Kenwood TS-530S Transceiver

The Kenwood TS-530S is a hybrid (solid state/tube) transceiver with a built-in AC power supply, digital display and full coverage of 160 meters thru 10 meters including the WARC bands. It has many of the features of the newer equipment like built-in VOX, noise blanker, speech processor, selectable AGC, selectable RIT/XIT and IF Shift. Uses a pair of 6146 tubes for the finals so it qualifies as a form of Boatanchor equipment.
