This is a nice, clean Kenwood TS-830S HF transceiver as shown in the following images. The front panel and digital display are very clean and bright. 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. This radio has been opened up to operate on the WARC bands. There are no optional filters installed. Serial number is 2090160. 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 through the set screw hole. This seems to be a rather common problem with the Hybrids. I replaced it with a solid brass coupler. The High Voltage capacitors and the screen/driver capacitors have been replaced. The bandswitch has been completely disassembled, each wafer cleaned, tested, and then reassembled. This will provide for many years of troublefree operation.

I will include a 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 and/or blow the final amplifier cathode resistors 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.
