    I have the 590SG and an Icom 7610 and I use the Kenwood probably 75% of the time. May be an 890 in my future.

    More TS-890S information.

    Here they say the FCC approved the new 890 recently. No doubt this is going to be a great radio to own. My 590SG uses one 32-decimal float point processor, the TS-890 uses two of them.

    Here below I found the full operator's manual on the new TS-890. You can download one pdf and go though it or do all four and see the whole manual. Be sure to enlarge each pdf to full screen making is easier to read.

    The 890 radios are being built starting last week in the 990 factory in Japan. They should be shipping over the month of September. Keep a eye out on your favorite dealers 890 page. They should post the price and delivery dates when the information comes from Kenwood. That should happen later this month or early next month.

    It's now Sept 19th and the radio price is showing at $4499 but I already found it from a smaller dealer for $4399. Could be some larger dealer with multiple stores may offer it for less.
