Hi folks. I am now the proud owner of this old hybrid tranceiver. (First model, ie no S or E) It works great with over 100Watts out on all bands and receiver seems fine.
I have purchased and built an aade Digital Readout kit. Is there any instructions/descriptions out there, on how to wire this in/to the rig ? Instructions with kit for this radio are, to say the least, rather sparse. I need to install three RCA type connectors on rear panel of radio and wire these to points within. Where is best position for these ?
Have tried searches for this info, with no luck so far.
Anybody out there done same job ? 
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Kenwood sold the DK-520 kit to allow the TS-520 to work with the DG-5. Later models already had the VFO/HFO/BFO sockets on threar of the transceiver.
This link will show you how to build the simple buffers and where to tap  into the TS-520's oscillators.
I did a similar thing for my Kenwood Twins and the AADE readout- worked beautifully.
