This rig does everything that its sister rig does, the TS-50S, except this rig is 6M only. Great sensitivity on RX and good TX compliments. And rediscover the pleasure of 50.400MHz AM again with this rig, as it does AM well. Has everything you need to work FM repeaters as well,(Offsets, PL tones.), but does fine with simplex QSO's on 52.525MHz as well. This, and its sister rig (The TS-50S), are certainly keepers with me.
