Stories & reviews

Good Allrounder

Kenwood 9R-59DS, Desktop Shortwave receiver

All tube receiver gives a great account for itself until you hit the top band. Injection from the local oscillator fades away above about 20-23Mhz and the unit basically goes deaf. I have tried new and different LO tubes and managed to get it working properly with a cathode follower and optional regulator tube. For the vintage, a good receiver.
