I have a Kenwood 590s on the way and I presently have a Icom PS-125 power supply. Will the Icom work with the Kenwood or do I need another Power supply? If I need another what is recommended?

Your PS-125 will work just fine.
It's a 25 amp supply.
The '590 Instruction Manual spec page says it draws "less than 20.5 A" on transmit.
and BTW - you'll LOVE the '590.
Great radio!

Voltage and currentwise it would work, but the PS125 doesn't have terminals on it, only a power cord terminated in a 6 pin Molex plug for the radio. If the TS590 uses the 4 pin connector on the power cord like many of the newer rigs do, you would need an adaptor.

No reason to panic, PowerWerx makes suitable adapter cable.
