My third was described by the seller as “junk”. A wide range of optional accessories combined with its easy-to-use format make the Kenwood TSS receiver a perfect choice for those that want a no-frills radio they can depend on. It,is 35 years old, for crying out loud! Today, I decided to crack it open, remove all of the boards inside, ta120s them, inspect and clean all connectors and re attach.

Solid state, vintage. My antenna system is the weak link right now but I have no trouble making contacts within the lower 48 states on 20m and consistently receive good signal reports.

No menus, no fartarsing around, just plain good radio. Likely, the issue is poor flow soldering. A CW filter meters out the band waves so you can enjoy clearer audio sounds even in the most disruptive environments.

It’s everything I expected and more and I still have it, but about ts120d I use it for is 12, 17, 30 and The weak part is the big mechanical bandswitch. Overall, it is a joy to use. My “new” is scruffy but works well. I just had a QSO with a station from New Keneood on 20m and got a 59 report, that’s how good this radio is.

Kenwood TS 120S Radio Transceiver

W7UUUJul 18, I just bought my,third Ts in nearlt 50 years, though this is my;first S model. But it is so basic and old at this point calling it “perfect” is a bit of an exaggeration. I got my license back in after a long absence and immediately ordered a new radio. Thanks for the advice mark. If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be fantastic.

Kenwood TSS Product Reviews

A bit of messing around and it seemed to pick up and start working intermittently on certain bands and modes but not on others. I cleaned the band switch earlier and that’s when the problem came up. It had a crack in one of it’s cards, poor RX and no TX at all. The box stayed unopened for a couple days while I pondered trying to send it back, but I did not.

It looks like it was already serviced at some point prior to me owning it, and I do not see any suspect solder joints, it looks like anything that would pass as suspicious has already been touched up. By the time my shiny new toy arrived I had a homebrew fan dipole up for 10, 15 and 20 and was using the old Kenwood every day. This rig is great for everyday use as long as it is kept up.

A 12 volt battery won’t quite carry the freight for a TS I just acquired a kenwood tss transciever. I have an Icom IC as my main base rig. I wanted a budget-priced solid-state rig to run mobile, as kenwooe up a base station lenwood isn’t possible for me right now and my Heathkit HW is just too big to run mobile in a modern vehicle not to mention power requirements I’m has a much more stable vfo, much better noise reduction, more consistent power out and bigger screen, and weighs almost 3 times more.

The lowest-priced item that has been used or worn previously. Install a fixed channel for the 7, 14, 21, and 28 MHz bands, up to four fixed channels in all. Its really cool talking on this rig that has so many miles on it.
