This is a beqautiful Kenwood TS-830S HF transceiver as shown in the following images. The front panel and digital display are very clean and bright. There is no odor of smoke in this radio and you can see how clean the inside is from the images. The radio works beautifully with full output from the 6146B final tubes. It has great audio on both receive and transmit. These radios were known for their audio. There are no optional filters installed. Serial number is 1050220.

I have thoroughly cleaned and aligned this radio. Knobs, cases, and front panel were thoroughly cleaned and reassembled. The original shaft coupler (Nylon, plastic) for the bandswitch has been replaced with a solid brass coupler. The bandswitch has been completely disassembled, cleaned, tested for high resistance contacts, and reassembled. The high voltaghe capacitors and the screen/driver capacitors have been replaced with new.

I will include a nice laser printed copy of the instruction manual complete with the fold out schematic.
If you are not familiar with tuning a radio with tube finals, please be careful with this radio. You can destroy the final amplifier tubes if you do not tune it properly. The 6146B tubes are sturdy, but will not take unlimited abuse. You can download and print a PDF description of how to tune the hybrids at Kenwood Hybrid Tuning Procedure .

If you have any questions, please email or you can call me at 970-381-6768.
