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



This is a nice example of the Kenwood TS-530S HF transceiver. There are very few marks on this radio. It 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 3080424.

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 aligned. I replaced the original shaft coupler (Nylon, plastic) for the bandswitch even though it was not cracked. Cracking of this coupler seems to be a rather common problem with the Hybrids. I replaced it with a solid brass coupler. The high voltage filter 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 trouble free operation.

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.
