    I am seeing what I think is an unusually large number of posts selling the TS-590. Does anyone know what's up with that?

    Most likely they're planning to purchase the new TS-990 the price has been announced at $7999.00.

    I don't know, but I would love to have one. They are excellent radios. Of course there are 590 haters out there. It's actually comparable to the k3 with better audio....

    I really don't see it at all - where can I find these cheap TS-590's? I checked the three dealers I most commonly check and there were ZERO there. I looked at the first 100 ads on QTH and of those, there were three 590's - one that is pending sale, one that was listed yesterday, and a third one that someone is selling for parts (don't know why - perhaps they ran it over with their car or it was hit by lightning?). I'd say that there were more of about every rig I can think of than TS-590's. Some people do buy rigs and then decide they just don't like them, and sometimes the performance numbers don't tell the whole story.

    I certainly do see some used bargains out there right now. It always happens when I am broke.

    They have been that way since they were first released being sold from a week to 2 months old, I know for a fact that I have saw no less than a 100 of them for sale from the beginning. I think if you look on all the boards today you will find 3 or 4 for sale all very new units. For the amount of those units sold way to many new units back up for sale.

    I had mine for 3 weeks before I sold it bad problem with transmitter overshoot to amp. Kenwood still doesn't want to talk about it nor close in IMD problems.

    I was asking the same question the last week or four.

    Every one of the (very) few I came across was within $200 of new, and/or already sold, so I gave up and picked up a new one at the local dealer Friday.

    OK, I found one used for $1375 which is about what I can get one new with warranty. Where are these blowout prices?
