I am about to buy stationary HF station now. And I am thinking between these two. Before you post please don't write "Buy Icom 7300". We all know that Kenwood has tradition in making good radios and I approve that TS-590 is solid rig. It is very very good radio I've tried it. I never used 3000 but based on what I've found on internet (correct me if I am wrong), this is why I think yaesu have advantage: 1) FTDX 3000 has same IF (Intermediate Frequency) as FTDX 101: 9 MHz and 24 kHz 2) Yaesu have these roofing filetrs: 15 kHz, 6 kHz, 3kHz, 600 Hz, and option to add 300 Hz, TS 590 has only 2.7 kHz and 500 Hz 3) Yaesu preamplifiers (two options) 10 dB (pre1) 17 dB (pre2) Kenwood, only yes and no. 4) Yaesu RF attenuator (three options) 6 / 12 / 18 dB Kenwood, only yes and no 5) Dynamic range based on what I've found Yaesu: 108.5 dB (10 KHz spaced signals, pre1 ON or OFF). 106 dB (2 KHz spaced signals, pre1 ON or OFF). Kenwood: 87 dB (2 KHz spaced signals, 7 MHz, BW 500 Hz, Pre OFF, RX1) 107 dB (20 KHz spaced signals, 7 MHz, BW 500 Hz, Pre OFF, RX1) 6) Noise reduction, I think that yaesu wins here. It seems that it has 15 different algorithms while kenwood has only one and you can only increase the intensity of it. Correct me if I am wrong here. It uses texas instruments DSP TMS320C6727B (2800 MIPS / 2100 MFLOPS) similar one is in in FTDX101 it is TMSS320C6746 (2949 MIPS/ 2220 MFLOPS) 7) Has bigger colorful screen, where it is easier to see how did you set your width, notch, contour... Also a waterfall but I don't mind too much about that one. 8) Yaesu has 1 Hz frequency resolution and kenwood 10 Hz frequency resolution 9) Much more connections on the back of the radio 10) It is bigger 365 x 115 x 312 vs 270 x 96 x 291 mm and weights more 10 kg vs 7.4 kg 11) Based on reviews from eham, there are a lot of people who had 590 saying that after buying 3000 is was much better. One youtube video comparing these two: https://youtu.be/SCI9LyaONHM As I see one downside of the FTDX 3000 may be bit too complicated menu, but I think once you learn it it becomes easy. Every radio has it downsides. What are your opinions about these two, did anyone had experience while working on both? Thank you.
