And add on xtal filters as options? Please!


I can't see the point of the SSB one. 1.2kHz much narrower than anyone needs on SSB.

I received my June issue of QST today. Although I have not read it yet, there is a very comprehensive review of the TS890.

One picture caught my eye.... the display was configured in SWL mode and looked like a vintage sw receiver, with multiple horizontal bands displayed.

I like that (as an OF)…

Saw that too. I have a Flex-6400 but really love that SWL display on the 890.

Hi Zack, I read the article today and thought it was pretty cool, they labeled the SWR frequency as "Megacycles".

TS890S has a very good receiver, as good as the FT Dx-101D, and better than the IC-7610 (according to Rob´s chart).
For ESSB guys, Kenwood has 4 KHz Tx while Yaesu is 3 KHz (not TTBF mode confirmed).
Tx quality Kenwood is best.

FT Dx-101D´s screen is a video game. Are we gaming?
TS-890S is clean and profesional. Waterfall is best.
Kenwood has LAN connection, Yaesu will release an external box (at extra cost).

Icom´s quaity is lower than Yaesu and Kenwood.


If you are not a heavy contester... Kenwood TS-890S is the choice.

I took the plunge and bought a TS-890. It is ONE AMAZING radio.
Being an OF, it's going to take me a long time to feel comfortable with it. I'm just familiar with "Icom speak/menus"
Without tweaking either radio in any way (default), I listened to some 6M beacons up in '3' land. The 890 was easily the winner as opposed to my 7300, using the same antenna.

I've found the 7300 and 7610 receiver performance (default) was a tie on 50 MHz.

My antenna is an M2 6M7JHV at 105' fed with 7/8" hardline.

For some reason (I put in a RFI report to my power co) the 6M noise is much lower than it has been recently. Not zero, but much improved.
I see no RFI on any HF band.... Smiley
