$500.00 plus shipping



This is a very nice example of the Kenwood TS-530SP HF transceiver. The TS-530SP is similar to the TS-530S with the addition of an adjustable notch filter located on the front panel. This is very useful in eliminating annoying heterodynes while receiving SSB signals. The case and front panel show some small marks from use. These are easily seen in the images provided here. This radio looks great and performs beautifully. Full output from a pair of 6146B final tubes. This radio produces solid audio both transmit and receive. There are no optional filters installed. Serial number is 4090065.

The high voltage capacitors and the screen/driver capacitors have been replaced. The three panel lamps have been replaced. The flat pack relay on the AVR board has been replaced with a newer type relay board nad two plug in type relays.

There is no smell of smoke. I will include a very nice comb bound copy of the instruction manual.
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 completely aligned. Works perfectly with full output on 10 meters.

The original shaft coupler (Nylon, plastic) for the bandswitch was found to be cracked and was replaced with a brass coupler.
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 S2001A tubes are sturdy, but will not take unlimited abuse.
