Kenwood TS-990S Brochure(pdf)

Product background and features:

The debut of the TS-900 in 1973 established the magnificent tradition of KENWOOD flagship HF transceivers, designed for DX'ers with exacting requirements for long-range high-performance Amateur Radio communications. Successor series have been the TS-930, TS-940, and TS-950. Continuing this tradition, the new TS-990 is equipped with dual receivers to enable simultaneous reception on two different bands. The main receiver employs full down conversion and features a new mixer and narrow-band roofing filters, resulting in a third-order intercept point of +40dBm; this represents the highest level of RX performance. Also equipped are triple 32-bit floating point DSPs and an original IF AGC circuit featuring leading-edge DSP technology. Advanced KENWOOD technologies deliver the top-end RX performance that DX'ers are looking for in an HF transceiver. Moreover, 50V MOSFETs are used for the final amp, ensuring stable high-output operation with minimal distortion, even at 200W RF output power. All this and more: the world's first* dual TFT display - with a band scope, audio scope, and S meter - offers enhanced visibility and operating ease.
