This is a very nice Kenwood TS-830S HF transceiver as shown in the following images. There are some minor scratches and marks on the case as seen in the 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 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 in this radio.
 

The serial number is 3040008. For what it is worth, this has the gold label on the front.
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 replaced with a solid brass coupler. No worry about it cracking in the future. The High Voltage capacitors and the screen/driver capacitors were replaced with new units. The bandswitch has been completely gone through with the switch wafers removed from the main board, cleaned, checked for resistance, and carefully reassembled.

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 6146 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 .
