Estimating the value of a rig can be challenging. We collect prices paid by real hams over the years to help you estimate the current value of the Kenwood JR-500SE. Just bought or sold this model? Let us know what you traded it for and help other ham operators!
Good receiver if you only want amateur (ham) band coverage. Not a general coverage unit, but is a great number for the bands. Stable after warmup with no drift. RF amp tube replaced with 6EH7 which increased the gain of the front end.
