HF Radios

Kenwood TS-430 w/ PS-430

For trade is a Kenwood TS-430 HF
transceiver with matching Kenwood PS-430
power supply, with two microphones.

These units are used, but appear to be in
great working order. There are the usual
scratches, to be expected for their ages, but
the cosmetic condition is good overall. Only
odd thing I've found is that the side case
screws and carrying handle are missing on
the TS-430. the top and bottom screws are
in place. I have ordered another carrying
handle and can send it along when it
arrives. The case screws are easy to find at
a large hardware store. I don't have the
original hand microphone, but I have a
Realistic desktop microphone (verified
working fine with good audio) and an
Astatic Silver Eagle microphone with the
plug removed (supposed to work fine - I
have not verified). Both microphones are
I had intended to keep this rig for use as a
backup radio, but my interests have taken
me in another direction, so here it is. I've
been a ham for about 15 years, and I've
owned a few TS-430s over the years, so I
went through it as well as I could prior to
listing it. Here is what I found: The FM
board appears to be installed. All buttons
and switches appear to work. All lights
appear to work. The LCD has no burned-
out segments. All modes and bands seem
to work fine. I hooked it up to my tri-band
yagi, and it puts out a 100 watt carrier on
10, 15, and 20 meters (the only bands I
could test). So, power output seems fine.
The fans on the backs of the transceiver
and power supply kick on and off as
expected. I had a USB QSO to Buffalo, NY
on 20 meters this morning and got a 5x8
report with good audio using the Realistic
desktop microphone. The MARS/CAP mod
has been performed.
I would like to trade this setup, plus cash if
needed, for an inexpensive linear amplifier
(such as a Yaesu FL-2100, Ameritron AL-
84, Heathkit SB-200 or SB-220, etc.) I
would prefer a tube-type amp that does at
least 500 watt. No CB amps, please. Please
let me know what you have. email is best,
telephone if needed (801) 243-4154.
