This is a beautiful Kenwood TS-830S HF transceiver as shown in the following images.  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 (100 watts or more) from the 6146B final tubes. It has great audio on both receive and transmit. These radios were known for their audio. This radio has been opened up to operate on the WARC bands. Serial number is 2041542. Both optional CW filters (YG-455C & YK-88C) are installed.

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 was found to be cracked and was replaced with a new brass coupler. The high voltage filter capacitors and the screen/driver capacitors have been replaced with new. The bandswitch has been completely removed, disassembled, cleaned and reassembled. This assures full drive and output on all bands including 10 meters.

I will include a very nice printed and comb bound 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 .
