This is a nice, clean 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 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. Serial number is 6030081.

I have thoroughly cleaned and aligned this radio. Knobs, cases, and front panel were thoroughly cleaned and reassembled.

The following parts have been replaced:
o The original shaft coupler (Nylon, plastic) for the bandswitch was replaced with a brass coupler.
o The high voltage capacitors and the screen/driver capacitors have been replaced.
o The bandswitch has been completely disassembled, cleaned, each contact tested, and then reassembled. Should be good for another 100,000 miles.


I will include a nice 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 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 .

If you have any questions, please email or you can call me at 970-381-6768.
