The long awaited Kenwood TS-890s has arrived. My first impression is fare above expectations. This transceiver is a hybrid product where the analog and the SDR technologies are merged into a State of the Art context. The build quality, ergonomic layout, menu setup, filtering, adjustable bandwidth, receive and audio capabilities are fare superior to any transceivers I have previously acquired.
