Re: KENWOOD TS590


Ive been looking to change my radio, ive looked at the TS590, FT2000 and the IC756 p3, and ive been looking at the reviews.

The IC756 P3 seems the better radio, The FT2000 has some awfull reviews.

But to be honest NONE of them seem to be any better than my TS870 i have, I bought it brand new, Last of the stock from M Lynch quite a few years ago now.

so It looks like the 870 is staying.

posticon Re: KENWOOD TS590


ALL I CAN SAY IS THE FT590 GOT THE HIGH ROAD AWAY OVER PRICED AS REGUARDS THE REST ALL I CAN SAY IS THE 590 IS A GLORIFIED 570 WITH DSP THE FT2000 FIRST BATCH HAD PROBS BUT IF YOU GET 1 WITH THE PROPER PEP FIRMWARE INSTALED YOUR WELL AWAY AND ALL I CAN SAY ABOUT THE PRO 3 ITS DISCONTUINED , OVER PRICED & OVER RATED SO MY ADVISE IS IF WHAT YA HAVE IS TO YOUR LIKING KEEP IT AS THE SAYIN GOES IF ITS NOT BROKE DONT TRY & FIX IT 73S

Re: KENWOOD TS590


Love my 590, hears things better than any of my other radios and easy to use, get great audio reports to, takes a bit of time to tinker with to get the best results
