Has APF, IF Notch, Audio Auto Multi-Notches.

The second receiver is dedicated to the Bandscope, so if you want to monitor another freq, you'll need to do it with your eyes instead of your ears.

Hmm, not yet in VK-land?  Maybe Kenwood thought VKs were a little harsh on the IC-7610 when it came to you first, so they decided to make you wait....  Wink

No Dual receive, but it has APF i'm pretty sure.....

It's not even available for sale in VK land yet.... Kenwood must have left us off the world map, or maybe not large enough market?...


Les, VK3TEX.

That's not quite true.  They are available there but you have to promise Kenwood that you will bolt it to the desk so it doesn't fall up to the ceiling.  Cheesy Cheesy

Sorry I just couldn't help it.  Grin

It's worse than you may think.  JVC Kenwood Australia have apparently not yet decided to import the TS-890S. Consequently, the few local dealers are not stocking the radio, although there is vague talk by them of parallel importing.  Very unsatisfactory, and worth complaining to the Australian company and the Japanese parent.

I am considering just buying one from the US and living with the small risk of warranty returns to a reputable US dealer.  No different to the situation with US-made equipment, after all.

“We want what we can’t have.”

Possibly a big driver for desiring something unobtainable, in this case obtainable with extra effort and chagrin.  But on the bright side if you do get one of the few there, it should be a good QSO topic.  Grin

Thanks for the baseless pop psychology but you're well off beam in this case.  Regardless, in the global era a regional supply issue is a essentially a non-event, with plenty of alternatives.

Your “It’s worse than you may think,” got me on that track.

Commiserating with ye mate. Grin again.
Not directed to specifically you but just a ‘pop’ for all of us who may not consciencelessly recognize all the drivers of desire.
