Kenwood Japan Visit Waters & Stanton June 27th, 2013
There can be little doubt as to the popularity and the success of the Kenwood new TS-990s transceiver. They have managed to put into this package, just about everything that the modern ham operator could wish for, including an extra 3dab in the shape of a 200W power amplifier. And because of this increased power it means that you also get built-in power supply for your money.
Kenwood, like the majority of Japanese manufacturers take a very keen interest in how their products are received and what features they should consider for future developments. And for this reason, they visited Wares & Stanton yesterday to talk about the TS-990S and future products.

It was an interesting meeting and was particularly reassuring that Kenwood continue to regard ham radio as an important part of their business.
