Kenwood TS-590SG HF/6m Base Station

Kenwood TS-590SG HF/6m Base Station

The Kenwood® TS-590S provides impressive, yet affordable amateur operation on the HF and 6 meter bands. Thanks to a down-conversion receiver, narrow first roofing filter and dedicated first mixer, the TS-590S has the best dynamic range in its class when handling unwanted adjacent off-frequency signals¹. Having the first roofing filter (6 kHz BW) directly after the mixer enhances the noise blanker’s ability to deal with adjacent off-frequency signals. The result is excellent receive performance, revealing signals that would be hidden to lesser rigs.

Kenwood was the first in the amateur radio market to deploy DSP based AGC at the IF stage with the TS-870S. This DSP technology has now been taken to the next level with the TS-590S. With this new transceiver, a 32-bit DSP is deployed from the IF stage forward, the TS-590S marks a bold new chapter in Kenwood’s proud history of making compact, high-performance transceivers. The DSP based AGC has been improved for the target signal in the IF passband, this result is greatly improved in-band IMD characteristics that are on par with those “top of the line” transceivers costing much more¹ (¹for 160/80/40/20/15 CW/SSB/FSK).

The TS-590S transmit section uses a die-cast aluminum chassis combined with a large heat-sink to increase heat dissipation efficiency. The cooling system uses the same size fan as in the previous model, but now uses two of them. This allows the fans to run at a much lower RPM while still providing more airflow. Lower RPM means less noise. This heavy-duty TX design is capable of withstanding long hours of operation under grueling conditions as found on DX-peditions or during contests. Excellent performance is expected, combined with ergonomic operation.

Heil PR40 Professional Microphone

HeilSound_PR40Chrome HeilSound_PR40GoldThe Heil PR 40 microphone boasts the widest frequency range of any dynamic mic in the Heil PR series. The PR 40 incorporates Heil’s sage-like understanding of phasing plug placement, along with the use of a very large (1.5”), low mass diaphragm, and custom magnet metals housed in a specially designed microphone body.

The PR 40 diaphragm is shock mounted such that it is completely de-coupled from the anodized Champagne matte-finished steel body. In addition to dual mesh screens, each made with different diameter screen apertures, there is an internal breath blast filter on the diaphragm element itself, providing superb response for the human voice across the entire vocal range, without “popping” noises. In fact, the PR 40 will provide flawless, smooth, flat response from 28 Hz all the way up to the 18k Hz, making this a great microphone for everything from vocals, to bass drums and tom drums, to guitar and bass cabinet mic’ing and more.

In short, the PR 40 is known by professionals as the “thoroughbred work-horse” of professional sound recording and reinforcement.

The PR 40 is available in champagne, gold plate, or chrome plate. With all PR 40 models you get an adjustable cast metal microphone holder in a padded Leatherette bag with molded foam insert.

Heil Sound, Ltd. warrants all microphones to the original purchaser for a period of three years (parts) and ninety days (labor) from the date of purchase.
