Kenwood Launching New TS-590SG HF/50MHz Transceiver
Since the original TS-590S first went on-air in 2010 it enjoyed a fine reputation for its excellent receive performance, its great audio and affordable pricing and now by adopting some of the technology developed for Kenwood's flagship model TS-990S, the TS-590′s TX and RX performance have been further improved.New Features Include:
- Advanced AGC control through digital signal processing from the IF stage onward featuring all of the IF DSP AGC technology developed with the TS-990S.
- Built-in Morse code decoder function, displayable by scrolling on 13-segment display unit. In addition to the existing PF keys, functions can also be assigned to the MULTI/CH knob’s Push SW.
- Quick settings are made possible by assigning level setting functions such as keying speed.
- The RIT/XIT/CL keys can also be used as programmable function keys.
In addition to conventional split frequency setting methods, the TS-990′s proven split setting functionality has been included. A long press of the SPLIT key, when making a 2 kHz upsetting, will enable quick setting by pressing “2″ on the keypad. Furthermore, in simplex operation with just XIT on, the XIT frequency can be changed with TF-SET. The keypad keys are band-direct keys. Each band has 3 memories, enabling quick call-up of usually-used frequencies.
Plus:- Antenna output function (shared with DRV connector), LED backlight with selectable colour tone, FIL A/B configurable independently with VFO A/B (convenient during Split operation), front or rear PTT selectable for Data PTT & switching from HI CUT/ LO CUT to WIDTH/ SHIFT now possible for reception bandwidth changing in SSB mode
