I see that Kenwood is upgrading the TS-590S to the TS-590G.  Will Kenwood be upgrading or replacing the TS-2000 since this radio has been around since 2001?  It would be nice if Kenwood offered a new transceiver to replace the TS2000 or upgraded it with the following:

- Improved HF receiver
- Update the 2M/440 and remove the birdies
- Add a programmable (455 kHz to 21.7 MHz) IF port
- Add a second receiver
- Price below $3000

Snap a torroid core around the keying lead, mike lead or anything else that is picking up RF.

At the beginning of this week I send the service folks an email.
Since they are preparing for a move, I won't bother them with a phone call. 

Their service is very good from previous experience.

I also agree with Don from HamUniverse that Jeff's words do not mean anything. When I was approached from Amateur Radio Supplies to become the affiliate manager I was very excited at the offer from Jeff. I received a payment in ADVANCE for the month which was very generous. I was also offered a generous 20% in sales and 40 hours of work each month at 10 an hour, which was great for me since I wasn't working. After receiving my 1st advance payment, which I desperately needed, it took several months of begging and pleading before I received anything else for the hours I worked. I finally stopped producing after my emails were ignored. The last response I received from Jeff was rather sarcastic, almost like he was rubbing it in my face that he owed me money for affiliate sales, even though at the time my family was broke and without any source of income.

  To this date, I have not received any Affiliate commissions and In the last response I received from Jeff he denies making any other offers, even though I have saved EVERY email from him.

He's going to need a power supply too so add another $115 or more depending on which supply. We don't know whether his 1K is just the radio or everything and we don't know how firm it is.

The important thing is that unless he just has to go back-packing, a QRP rig is not his best "starter" HF radio - in my opinion.

N6LF found in his 40m experiments that half a foot works within 1 db of 4ft.
He also finds that one short radial (counterpoise) may lead to higher gain that many long radials. This makes sense if we visualize a vertical wita  single radial as a vertical dipole. Wires close to ground generate losses so less wire close to ground means lower loss; losses cancel out with many radials.

When radials are few and short, the feed point is greatly off balance. So performance is compromised due to coax being part of the ground system,  and best baluns overheat at high power. Transformers (like those used with FCP radials) solve the problem completely.

W8JI claims that for 160m elevated radials do not work as well as many ground radials. Perhaps there is something with low angle radiation, and perhaps on 160m and at W8JI QTH.

They have been fairly strong LP on 20m in the early evening the last couple of days.

Heard Jon on 30m yesterday morning @10:30z, and Ed (I think) on 20m RTTY SP this morning about the same time.

I didn't have enough time to get through the JA pile before leaving for work.

Good luck.

I bought my first Eagle 3 years ago.

When they went on sale this summer, I bought a second Eagle.

I will be reconfiguring the shack for SO2R shortly. Corny friend of mine calls this configuration "Double Eagle" :-)

I have to ask Tim...

If you end up with the two rigs spread around the shack, does that make your configuration a...

no, on second thought, I won't say it.

Embarrassed I bought a Tentec Eagle at the old price and got STUCK big time!! They had no discounts or anything to offer to these unlucky people who fell into that category. So for that reason, I am done with Tentec and their products.
And you waited until NOW to say something?

Why didn't you contact Stan as soon as the summer sale was announced?

Or why didn't you return the rig under the 30 day "no questions asked" policy?


About a year ago, I bought some OS software from an online vendor.  Two days after the order was placed, they announced a discount.  I dropped their Customer Service folks an email asking if anything could be done, and they were more than happy to send me a gift card for the price difference. 

I could have sat home and steamed about it.  Instead I went and did something about it.
