Description

TS-590S, has brushed up its basic performance and functions to meet customers’ demands. By adopting the technology developed for our flagship model TS-990S, the transmission and reception performance has been greatly improved. TS-590SG evolves for more comfortable operation from the beginner to DX’er. Equipped with 500 Hz/ 2.7 kHz Roofing Filter as standard 1st IF frequency (11.374 MHz) down conversion*2 is employed when receiving on 15, 20, 40, 80 or 160 meter bands. Included as standard directly after the 1st Mixer and Post Amp that compensates for conversion loss is a BW 500 Hz and 2.7 kHz 6-pole MCF, which determines adjacent receptivity realizing superb dynamic range performance that was not possible using up conversion. Even when an interfering signal approaches the reception frequency, a virtually flat dynamic range is maintained. You can capture a clear signal even in reception conditions where strong adjacent interfering signals become problematic. Advanced AGC control through digital signal processing from the IF stage onward It would be no exaggeration to say that Kenwood’s receive audio, which enjoys a reputation for being non-tiring even in long contests, is determined by IF AGC control based on unique DSP algorithms. This series features all of the IF DSP AGC technology developed with the TS-990S. A remodeling of the AGC circuitry has realized superb AGC performance covering from small to large inputs. Even if interference signals slip between the Roofing Filter and the IF DSP filter that determines the final selection, level optimized AGC control enables operation without the need for awareness of Roofing Filter bandwidth. Morse code decoder function Received morse code displayable*4 by scrolling on 13-segment display unit. Moreover, characters are shown*4 in a dedicated window on the ARCP-590G (freeware).
