Yes, Hebrew is Right to Left, I believe Japanese and other Asian languages may also be "Right to Left" or even "Bottom Right to upper Left". This is how I spent most of my day with a TS-590. Our club lost a member. As it is almost "written in stone", if the ARO becomes an SK before his/her mate, the survivor has no idea what to do with dear-departed-SK's Shack. This is how our club inherited a TS-590 and 570. We had our Club breakfast on Sat. I took home the Kenwood's as I am nearly home-bound 24/7, as I care for my 90+ YO mom, I can demo the radio's for a prospective buyer. Until Sat. the only Kenwood in my possession, was the tri-band HT. My Shack is all Yeasu, (not to dump on the others by any means), my first radio was a Yeasu HT, I used for "Radio Telephone", back when Cell Phones were in diapers and you were charged for INCOMPLETE calls, the late 80's. That HT had a huge battery attached by a very weak mount. Drop it... and you may be in the market for a new radio or for sure, a battery. I have a DX-1200 and FT-991 So I cable up the power supply, fire up the radio and...nothing...can't hear diddly-squat. My SDR said quite the contrary on 20 and 6. Fast-Forward about 6 hours... Only after I put on my reading glasses and took a long look at the back side, (yes I did read the manual and failed to see it) I saw to my shock and terror, the folks at Kenwood decided to make "Antenna 2" the Left side connector and "Antenna 1", the Right side, in bound, the exact opposite of my Yeasu's. What were they thinking? Most of the day, I was calling out, to a Dummy load. Yes the TS-590 worked as expected after swapping the cable and dummy load... Initial reaction, "would I trade it for my FT-991?" No chance...unless I'm missing something good.
