    Evidence that the Kenwood TS-590S does indeed exist! This is a far-away shot, but hopefully I'll receive some close-ups later.

    Dayton Day 1 - There are some good shots of the new Kenwood TS-590S. You can hear the Kenwood rep saying that the receiver in it will have very close to the same specs as the Elecraft K3. That will be one nice receiver, if it does! There are also images of the new Kenwood 7000 VHF/UHF HT and some new Alpha amplifier gear. Toward the end is the new Icom IC-9100H. You can hear the rep say the price on the IC-9100 will be $3000 with D-Star.

    Finally! The new Kenwood TH-D72 GPS APRS HT was shown. One neat thing is that has a USB connection. It's about time....

    I also want to try the wouxun HT!! My son wants the FLEX 5000 they sent me the testdrive disk lastyear and Iloded it in my computer and man does that thing have the options right infront of you on the screen its easy to run and is amazing!!! I been waiting for the damn price on that new Kenwood they always had a great receive in there rigs filtering seems better than most. If that new rig has a decent price on it I may end up running a Kenwood on the main bench again ;) I had to laugh when I seen that radio was tuned to 3.913.00 (y)

    I still think the VX-8DR is still a better HT over the new TH-D72, although I haven't seen the new Kenwood. It will be interesting to see the price, if it's low enough could be great. ;)

    I was there Saturday. I am very fortunate to live just 15 miles from Hara Arena... and try to never miss a Hamvention.

    You may have noticed me... I had this T-Shirt on:

    I want to thank the 40 or so people that during the day commented "nice shirt", others that asked to shake my hand, and the two that asked to take a pic.
