New Kenwood TS-590 Release Specifications


Kenwood_ts-590

The new Kenwood TS-590 that created a buzz at Dayton this year is finally being released worldwide this October. Kenwood Japan has released the final specifications. It looks like it’s going to be a superb receiver but the pricing looks to be well over 2K USD. Kenwood’s Japan site lists it at 228,900.00 JPY=2,679.41 USD. No doubt this is due to the fluctuating value of the YEN these past few months.

You can read all about it at these links at Kenwood Japan

The US sales manager stated sales price would be no more than $1800. Lets hope so or the K3 will not feel any sales pain.

I agree, of course the price will be higher here in the Great White North.

I had heard for some time now that Kenwood may be releasing a new rig. I was beginning to wonder if Kenwood was going to stay in the ham game but this tells me they are. Seems like a nice rig.
