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 from the new 6146W 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.
Both optional CW filters are installed. These are the YG-455C and the YK-88C filters.

The serial number is 4090056. This is a late serial number. Since this is a later serial number radio, it comes with the Murata CFJ455K-12 filter installed. This filter is a 2.9kHz wide filter and produces a slightly better audio response. 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 were replaced with new units. The final amplifier tubes (6146B) have been replaced with a new set of 6146W tubes.

I will include an original 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 .
