    Dayton

    Im looking forward to what kenwood has to say in Dayton.

    I hope the add on the back of June QST isn't fake as I noticed the april first April fools date. Layout seems logical

    Anyway I own a TS590 for the simplicity and the receiver. Love the radio even though I am concerned abt kenwood fixing the overshoot.

    I think the price should be 3k for the 990. That way they can do what kenwood used to do back in the 80s. Own the market and and the others will follow. I don't like seeing kenwood copying anyone's design or market strategy, because they have always been smarter than that.

    We will see.... still loyal

    See you this weekend

    I have been posting about the April 1st date and the fact that the public got hold of the "Pictures" here and on various other forums for over a week. I really find the public viewing before <st1:City w:st="on">Dayton</st1:City> to be very odd. Everyone seems to ignore that and I guess it would really be stupid if Kenwood was to unveil a unit that is different from the pictures that people say come from QST. What would be even more tragic is if it's not only different but not a nice as the one we are seeing now. I truly doubt this is joke but that April 1st date and the early release are a head scratcher.

    In my opinion, this transceiver is more expensive for a HF+50 only. I don't know which is the difference between a Icom IC-756(pro II or III) or this kenwood. (For a pay difference price, offcourse!!)

    TS-990

    The Kenwood TS-990 Prototype was on display under a Plexiglass case and a black cloth covering the back. Kenwood said this was a non working unit and it is still in development. Also they said it will cost more than $5,000 and less than $10,000.
