The dual receivers facilitate reception on different bands.
The main receiver is the highest quality receiver among the TS-900 series, thanks to its down-conversion configuration, newly adopted mixer, and five types of roofing filters. This highest quality transceiver will show its true mettle in contests, and fierce pile-ups even with high-intensity signals.
The TS-990S will surely satisfy any real DX'er.
Operating ease is further enhanced with the multi-scroll key. Similar to the control found on some mobile phones, this can be rocked up & down, left & right with the thumb. Vertical operation controls frequency, while horizontal movement controls band selection. There is also a 16-key pad with keys that are ergonomically spaced and illuminated for night-time use.
Even after using narrow bandwidth filters for long periods of time, it is still easy to hear and less tiring to listen to. In addition to introducing AGC control using dedicated DSP, we have further refined the KENWOOD sound and reception sound quality transmitted by radio operators worldwide by innovating the analog AGC unit and installing numerous interference and noise elimination functions. Such innovations have given new life to KENWOOD's legendary sound.
