Default New Kenwood TS-590S HF rig


Here is a copy of the press release from Kenwood on their new HF/6 meter rig that is showing at Dayton 2010:


Kanagawa, Japan, May 7, 2010 Kenwood Corporation, an operating company of the JVC Kenwood Group, is proud to announce the autumn/winter launch of two new Amateur Radio transceivers: the TS-590S and TH-D72.

HF/50MHz All-Mode Transceiver - TS-590S (tentative naming)

Featuring a 32-bit floating-point DSP, the TS-590S will offer advanced receiver performance and an extensive range of features that make it ideal for beginner and seasoned DXer alike. The radios exceptional ease of operation, true to the Kenwood tradition, will be especially welcome for contest and mobile applications.

That's not a lot of info, but at least it confirms that the rig will be out this year

Rumor mill so far says

3kHz and 500kHz roofing filters included, all the rest is IF DSP inbetween.

USB and serial connections for computer control.

I'm curious what the audio TX width and options will be like in the different modes.

Price point rumor is $1800
