TRIO TS-510

Kenwood TS-510, Desktop Shortwave Transceiver

A great little rig. I get great audio reports using a Shure 444 mic. I've had it for 5 years and it is still on the air as of 2014. Easy to use and tune, good Rx audio thanks to the large speaker. The remote VFO is a plus as well. Reasonably stable TX.

I bought it from the original owner, in very nice condition. Not mint, but very nice, clean functioning. Even still has the original finals and manuals.
