    This is a quick video about the Kenwood TS-890S announced at the Dayton Hamvention with all the information available at the event. Please forgive the video quality as I film very quickly with my cell phone. Thanks for your understanding.

    Thanks for this! Did you get a look at the back? Does it have an ethernet port / remote server? I saw that the new Yaesu SDR FTDX101D does not!

    It's a few inches larger than my 590SG. The new TS-890S dimensions are: W15.6 X H5.6 X D13.4

    The new weight is 37.5 lb vs 25 lb for the earlier TS-870S model.

    Pricing and the release date will be in September only three months away.

    Yes, look carefully at the video, they actually removed the glass for me and turned the radio around. Yes there is an Ethernet port "LAN". 73 Pascal VA2PV.
