Kenwood TS-530S Classic Hybrid Transceiver
$375.00 plus shipping


This is a nice example of the Kenwood TS-530S HF transceiver. This radio performs beautifully. Full output from a pair of 6146B final tubes, bright display, solid audio both transmit and receive. There are no optional filters installed. Serial number is 2021299.

A thorough cleaning brought out the beautiful condition of this radio. Knobs, cases, and front panel were thoroughly cleaned and reassembled. The radio has been completely aligned. Works perfectly with full output on 10 meters. The bandswitch has been completely disassembled, cleaned, each contact tested, and then reassembled. Should be good for another 100,000 miles. New HV capacitors and screen/driver supply capacitors have been installed. The upper sprockets on the drive tune capacitors have been replaced with new. I will include a very nice comb bound copy of the instruction manual.

The original shaft coupler (Nylon, plastic) for the bandswitch was found to be cracked through the set screw holes and it has been replaced. This seems to be a rather common problem with the Hybrids. I replaced it with a solid brass coupler that will last forever.
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.
