Product concept

As a major manufacturer specializing in both audio and wireless communications, KENWOOD’s roots are to be found in the period of postwar economic growth, among a new generation of Japanese audiophiles and ham radio enthusiasts. Drawing on the advanced technologies and expertise gained over many years in both audio and wireless, we were able to satisfy even the most discerning customers by offering leading-edge products that were always one step ahead in innovation and performance. Now, in gratitude for the enduring support we have received from our customers, we have created this limited-edition Special Black version of the TS-590SG to commemorate KENWOOD’s 70th anniversary.

Product details

Based on the current TS-590SG HF/50MHz transceiver, this Special Black version features a distinctive front panel, main dial and glass screen. As a special deluxe model, it thus offers the highest levels of performance, functional versatility and quality in this product category – a reputation already established by the current model. We feel confident that this limited edition will more than satisfy the high expectations of our customers with an eye for elegant design.

A total of only 470 units of the Special Black TS-590SG will be made available worldwide, with a special serial number (unique for each market) applied to the rear panel.

Specifications are identical to the current TS-590SG model.

The Kenwood TS-590SG is Equipped with 500 Hz/ 2.7 kHz Roofing Filter as standard. 1st IF frequency (11.374 MHz) down conversion* is employed when receiving on 15, 20, 40, 80 or 160 meter bands. Included as standard directly after the 1st Mixer and Post Amp that compensates for conversion loss is a BW 500 Hz and 2.7 kHz 6-pole MCF, which determines adjacent receptivity realizing superb dynamic range performance that was not possible using up conversion. Even when an interfering signal approaches the reception frequency, a virtually flat dynamic range is maintained. You can capture a clear signal even in reception conditions where strong

adjacent interfering signals become problematic.

* Down conversion is selected automatically when receiving in CW/ FSK/ SSB modes if the final passband is 2.7 kHz or less.

Advanced AGC control through digital signal processing from the IF stage onward

It would be no exaggeration to say that Kenwood's receive audio, which enjoys a reputation for being non-tiring even in long contests, is determined by IF AGC control based on unique DSP algorithms. This series features all of the IF DSP AGC technology developed with the TS-990S. A remodeling of the AGC circuitry has realized superb AGC performance covering from small to large inputs. Even if interference signals slip between the Roofing Filter and the IF DSP filter that determines the final selection, level optimized AGC control enables operation without the need for awareness of Roofing Filter bandwidth.

Morse code decoder function

Received morse code displayable* by scrolling on 13-segment display unit. Moreover, characters are shown* in a dedicated window on the ARCP-590G (freeware).

* Proper decoding may not be available due to reception conditions, etc.

Programmable functions

Frequently used and special functions can be assigned to the programmable function (PF) keys. With

the TS-590SG, in addition to the PF keys, functions can also be assigned to the MULTI/CH knob's Push

SW. Quick settings are made possible by assigning level setting functions such as keying speed. The

RIT/XIT/CL keys can also be used as programmable function keys.

New Split function enabling quick setting

In addition to conventional split frequency setting methods, the TS-990's proven split setting functionality has been included. A long press of the SPLIT key, when making a 2 kHz upsetting, will enable quick setting by pressing "2" on the keypad. Furthermore, in simplex operation with just XIT on, the XIT frequency can be changed with TF-SET. The keypad keys are band-direct keys. Each band has 3 memories, enabling quick call-up of usually-used frequencies.
