Truly a marvel of electronic engineering, KENWOOD's stylishly new all-mode multibander is packed with top-end features yet compact enough for use at home, in your car, or on a DX'pedition. And a handsome 3D front panel -- featuring backlit keys and large amber display -- makes the appearance of this multibander as distinctive as its performance.
Features at a glance:
|CW Auto Tune at the touch of a button
|Satellite Communications with Doppler effect frequency correction
|300 Memory Channels
TS-2000 / 2000X / B2000 in detail:
Superior performance is assured with two 16-bit DSP chips, double-precision computing and a 100MHz speed CPU, plus 24-bit A/D and D/A converters.
CW Auto Tune
CW Auto Tune automatically adjusts VFO to your preset pitch at the touch of a button. In addition to the new Auto Tune, a full-range of CW features is available for extra operating convenience. The full/semi break-in switching and delay time settings are fully adjustable and when using VOX operation, the delay time can be set for between 150ms and 3000ms. Other CW features include pitch control (400 - 1000Hz), side tone monitor with 10-step volume setting, DSP-based rise time adjustment, and CW reverse mode.
HF/50/144/440/1200MHz* in one compact rig offering wide-band receive (500KHz to 1300MHz, non-contiguous) and 100W output (HF/50144MHz) makes this unit ideal for both base station use and mobile operation.
*Requires optional UT-20 1200MHz all-mode unit that must be installed by a qualified technician. Do not attempt to install it yourself.
Digital Signal Processing
IF-DSP (main band) combines with AF-DSP (sub band) to provide precision filtering and interference reduction.
Satellite operations are enhanced with IF-DSP, 10 dedicated memory channels, Doppler effect frequency adjustment (manual) and the ability to choose either normal or reverse shift for the trace.
300 Memory Channels
A bank of 300 memories (plus 1 call channel for each band) is provided, with 290 programmable by name and 10 available for programmable scan. Scroll function allows you to browse memory contents, memory channel copy sends the contents of one channel to another, lock-out memory changes the scan map to exclude certain channels, and memory shift alters the frequency stored in a channel.
Convenient Scan Functions
A full range of scan functions is provided, including MHz scan, memory scan, and call scan. Group scan mode covers all 300 memory channels in groups of 10, and programmable band scan will search a frequency spread between two VFO settings. A new feature is programmable slow scan, which will automatically slow down to check a frequency range you're interested in.
Automatic Antenna Tuner
The built-in antenna tuner -- that also operates when the radio is in receive mode -- covers amateur bands from 1.9 to 50MHz, with rapid tuning lock when using presets.
All of the power and functions of the TS-2000/2000X/B2000 can be accessed through the menu-driven display interface on the front panel. Activating the Quick Menu feature also gives you access to only your most commonly used functions.
Skycommand System II Plus
Built-in Transporter function means the TS-2000/2000X/B2000 can be operated remotely with one handheld transceiver.
