I found out from a Kenwood rep at Hamvention that there is indeed a new HF radio coming out and it will be a 950 class
Well that would be grand, as I am a big fan of the older "competition class"
Kenwood rigs. Though I have yet to put my hands on the 590, I hear it's great.
Nevertheless, I was told the precise same "coming soon" ispiel re a 950
class rig at a "Dealer Reception" thrown years ago for the intro of the TS-2000.
A Kenwood USA exec told me that juicy tidbit. But but when asked, the Kenwood
Japanese design engineers who had made the trip were either evasive or silent.I do hope you are right!
