KENWOOD TS-890S. HF - 4m
Kenwood's latest HF Transceiver - new batch just arrived!
New model with outstanding receiver performance and specifications
The Kenwood TS-890s Receive performance is on a whole new level from narrow bandwidth roofing filters that only full down conversion can provide.
The TS-890S uses 8.248MHz 1st IF frequency down conversion for its receive signal system in order to continue the adjacent interference signal exclusion legacy refined in the TS-990S. This means you can use narrow bandwidth crystal filters with passband widths of 500Hz or 270Hz (optional YG-82CN-1) as roofing filters to achieve strong exclusion of unnecessary adjacent signals. The 1st mixer is the H-mode mixer also carried by the TS-990S. Conversion characteristics have been improved with fine-tuning of input/output matching as well the device used.
Kenwood say this radio delivers top-class receive performance with the following specifications.
110dB* 3rd intermodulation dynamic range (3rd IMDR) measured under punishing 2kHz spacing conditions.
114dB* reciprocal mixing dynamic range (RMDR).
150dB* Blocking dynamic range (BDR)
(*: 2 kHz spacing measurement standard - Receiver frequency 14.2 MHz,
MODE CW, BW 500 Hz, PRE AMP OFF)
