    Hi,

    I have a old TS-830S and developed an issue on AF potentiometer. Is it possible to find the original potentiometer? if not what will be the best alternative.

    Thanks and 73

    Have to checked the parts list in the service manual?

    If it's something common you should be able to get its from The Usual Suspects ... Mouser, Jameco, Digikey, etc.

    Walter Dilley (KD7DNY) or Bob Mansker (KE5FTF) should be able to help you out. I doubt any of the major electronics houses will have new Alps pots of exactly the same mechanical layout as used in the '830.

    I bought a TS-830's front panel with all the pots and switches off eBay for like $35.00

    I trust you have tried cleaning and lubricating the original pot.?

    A '530's front panel (or AF/RF pot) will also work here.

    And while K4EAA is now SK, I think his widow is still maintaining his website for the Kenwood hybrids and might still be selling parts.
