Kenwood TS-530SP Classic Hybrid Transceiver
$425.00 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 front panel is in excellent condition as shown in the following images. This radio looks great and performs beautifully. Full output from a pair of 6146W final tubes. This radio produces solid audio both transmit and receive. There are no optional filters installed. Serial number is 6020047.

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 High Voltage capacitors and the Screen/Driver capacitors have been replaced. All three dial/meter lamps have been replaced. The radio has been completely aligned. Works perfectly with full output on all bands including 10 meters.

The original shaft coupler (Nylon, plastic) for the bandswitch was found to be cracked and was replaced.
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 6146W tubes are sturdy, but will not take unlimited abuse.
