The Kenwood TS-2000 is an all band HF/VHF/UHF transceiver with exceptional features and versatility. Wide band Main HF reception includes: 30 kHz-60 MHz. On VHF/UHF you get 142-152MHz and 420-450MHz. The rig appears menu intensive, but really isn’t and working through the menu is not a huge chore. Many are set and forget. Most needed features are on buttons or knobs, with a number of the buttons accessing a secondary function via the “Function” key.
Receive audio is quite good and pleasant, not at all tiring, while the DSP is very functional and easy to use and can cut out nearby signals fairly well. The filters are adjustable very simply by a quick turn of either the high or low cut knobs on the front panel.
