The TS-990S comes equipped with dual receivers for simultaneous reception on different bands, it also features narrow-band roofing filters on the main receiver in a full down-conversion configuration. The TS-990S achieves the highest basic reception performance of any radio in the TS series, through the careful selection of circuits, components and accelerating analysis using triple DSP configuration. Also, thanks to the dual TFT display and superior panel layout, it achieves both comfortable visibility and operability. Our top-of-the-line transceiver is for all radio operators who love HF
Overwhelmingly the highest quality receiver in the TS series
The main display shows basic information about the frequency, mode, meter, and other functions, as well as the on/off status of the other accessory functions. You can also view internal parameter settings and memory lists. In addition, it features a band scope function that allows you to monitor band status. Execute fast sweeps with FFT processing using DSP. Switch to different view modes such as waterfall and reception/transmission equalizer views.
High reliability design promises stable operation at 200 W
The POWER MOS FET VRF150MP runs at 50 V in push-pull. You can obtain a stable output of 200 W on all bands. You achieve superior IMD properties by pursuing bias and matching conditions in order to fully exploit the FET attributes. Further, you can realize KENWOOD’s distinctive tone by amplifying the clean modulated signal produced by DSP with an amplifier that exhibits excellent linearity.
