You are bidding on an excellent Kenwood TS-440SAT Transceiver from Jahnke Electronics.
Late Serial 10600080
This radio is in excellent working condition just completely aligned and the dot problem has been eliminated. The AT440 antenna tuner is installed. Meter light has LED mod installed. Memory battery is brand new. Unit transmits at a full 100 watts. The Mars and 10hz frequency display modification has been completed.
Keypad is very nice and has no bounce as we have applied our R5000 / ts440 keybounce repair kit on this transceiver. If you are considering purchasing a TS440, please realize they all are prone to keybounce which makes direct entry of frequencies almost impossible. We have developed a fix for this and all of our 440’s have this fix installed. This fix is the actual replacement of the keypad internals – the keypads on our 440’s work perfectly.
This radio is in EXCELLENT working condition and outstanding physical condition – the keypad and bezel as well as the case of this transceiver show the slightest of wear from very light use.
This TS440S does not have any optional filters installed. The CW filter and the SSB filter as well as the VS-1 Voice synthesizer are all available in our store. If you require this transceiver set up in a certain way or with a combination of accessories, please email us and we will quote you.
As with all of our radios / transceivers, all known issues have been addressed on this transceiver. This means that the dot problem has been corrected – conductive glue removed from the internals. (search Kenwood TS440 dot problem) It is generally understood that the TS440 either has been remedied of the dot problem permanently or it will eventually get the problem – please be aware of this possible issue when purchasing an TS440!
