Re: Kenwood TS-2000



Hi Jon,

My understanding of the rig is it has extra receivers for 2 meters,
and 70 cm. But that you can still do everything with the rig you
can do with any other satellite rig. Which includes 1.2 GHz, but
I could be wrong. That is the way I understand it anyway. It is
suppose to work 1.2 GHz, and is suppose to be transveter ready
for the other higher bands. Maybe a call to Kenwood is in order?

73...
