Hello,

I just lucked onto a 50 mil serial number, mint in box TS-870. I made the purchase for how nice I know the audio is with these units.

I have a complete grasp on tailoring the received audio, however there appears to be many settings and ideas on the net that do not come from reliable sources.

I will be using the Kenwood Mc-60 mic with this unit when it arrives.

Could a few of you that are owners of this fine rig please make suggested settings for good starting tx audio? I have heard to use some proc, no proc. some eq, no eq, mic gain use as opposed to using car to control the alc that I am really somewhat confused.

I would really appreciate all of the settings that you use and why, something  that I can start out with using good audio without having to ask so much on the air about different settings and how do I sound now?, type of qso's.

Thanks,

James

I have no experience with 870 but have with several other Kenwood's newer and older.  The point I wish to make is everyone's voice is different and setting that work for one may not for another. I suggest you find a few QSO's with operators willing to help you and give you over the air feedback.
