Great CW Rig  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have had my TS-590S for just about a year now & I have never been more satisfied with anything I've ever bought. This rig is awesome. I operate CW, and only CW, so I comment on how well it performs on SSB, but if it's even close to CW then this is one hell of a radio. If you're a CW op and want a great CW rig then your search is over.

The receiver is incredible with great filtering options. Some of the newer rigs today are overly complicated but not so the Kenwood. It's got plenty of sophistication, but it still retains a simplicity about its operation.

I've seen some people say this rig isn't a "contest" rig. Well I'm not sure what that's supposed to mean, but over this past weekend during the CQWW CW DX contest I operated 36 out of 48 hours and made over 1,200 contacts and it performed flawlessly.

Great rig, great value. Great job Kenwood. 
Product is in production.
