E-mail Kenwood and ask them where you can order one of the pots. They should give you a part number and a list of suppliers to contact.

Good luck.

First, you will need the part number from your radio's service manual (owner's manuals will sometimes list parts by number) - OR a schematic to determine the specific value of the part you need.

Some Kenwood authorized dealers (with in-house service facilities) may have the part on hand. #List of authorized dealers is on the Kenwood web site:
http://www.kenwood.net/indexKe....CatID=8 (http://www.kenwood.net/indexKenwood.cfm?do=SupportFileCategory&FileCatID=8)

I have sucessfully obtained Kenwood parts from the authorized Kenwood distributors listed below. # They carry Kenwood original replacement parts, service manuals, owner's manuals, and accessories. The part prices have been very reasonable -- for the parts that I needed.

Pacific Coast Parts lists the TS-751A RIT/RF Gain control pot as part number: R23-3403-05
$ 15.44 and appears to be in stock.

No parts appeared for the TR-751 (may be identical part as for the "A" verison - BUT I don't know)

Yesterday, I sent my TS-50 to the VA. Beach facility for long needed repairs, beyond my surface mount soldering facilities and ability. I've had it for 10 years and the display lamps gave out a couple years ago. About a year ago, after a bracket screw got overdriven into it--long story, never mind--a persistent circuit noise has appeared on all audio outputs, except headphone.

My IC-735 looks so lonesome without its phone/digital companion. I can't wait to get it back.
