Used radios

Post by stano53 »

I am new to hobby and need to set up an HF station. My question is which used Kenwood trancievers would you stay away from? Model numbers. I am looking at a ts120 and a ts440. Any problems with these or are they too old? What is considered too old? Thanks for any help!! :)

Back in the day, both of those rigs were pretty good. They do not support the WARC bands but hey if they are cheap enough who needs the WARC bands where either there are few ops or it is a band for rag chewing? If you get 10m - 160m without WARC and are new and the price is right, go for it. The bands should be hopping this winter so don't miss the sunspot cycle peak!!
