    The TS 590 was a sure fire winner for Kenwood , in the same way the 7300 has been for Icom.
    My 590 receiver compares favourably with my IC7610.
    The big draw for me is the Fishfinder.
    All in all, the IC7300 is hard to beat, bang for buck. 73 Des

    Probably a TS-590SGX its comes with a decal of the scope that it does not have.

    If the 7300 didn’t have the fishfinder but all else were equal, people might notice all of the important features it’s missing.

    Important to some, but probably not exactly common in a sub 1000 dollar entry level rig.

    Me? I liked the 7300 so much I got the similar 7610, but I could easily have kept on with "just" the 7300. It certainly has a few more features than my beloved Swan 500 did, and I had a ton of fun and worked much DX with that. ;)

    Ask your Governor about that and think next time at the ballot box

    I would be thrilled with a mixture of the 590SG and a pandapter. No need for any more to the SDR side. They wouldn't have to change a thing about the 590 on RX or TX, and just add pandapter, price it right, and it'd do well.

    I guess some people would rather be dead? (Or at least, friends and relatives?)
