    This is the extended transmit mod for the new Kenwood TS-590S. All you have to do is open up the rig and find resistor R900 and remove it. The location of the resistor is shown in the attached pic.

    This mod worked perfect.

    NOTE: The way I removed the resistor was by taking a small pair of diagonal cutters.

    Position the cutter across the center of the resistor.

    NOT to deep....DON'T touch the board !

    Just lightly squeeze the cutters.

    The resistor will break like glass !

    I just flipped the radio over blew out the tiny particles.

    Reassemble and reset the radio.

    With this method:

    NO damage....NO heat....NO damage to the pads or board.
