Announcement -- TS-590S TechNote: SSB Audio Handling v1.0
- TS-590S TechNote: SSB Audio Handling v1.0
I have posted a new TS-590S TechNote on the TS-590S Resources Page.
The aims of the TechNote are:
-- To summarize the many features built into the TS-590S for handling
-- To dispel some of the myths and misunderstandings arising from
Kenwood's inappropriate use of the word "DATA" in its documentation.
Emphasis is on the *functionality* of the TS-590S, describing what the
radio does, rather than how to operate it. For the most part, this
document is not a HOWTO (although it does include step-by-step
instructions for setting up TX and RX audio equalizer profiles using the
ARCP-590 control program).
The TechNote also includes detailed information on how TX keying works,
insofar as how it determines which audio input the radio uses when
The document is a long one: 28 pages. Please take the time to read it
thoroughly. It should present a consistent picture of how this wonderful
radio works, and will hopefully clear up some of the misconceptions that
have appeared on the reflectors from time to time.
I must acknowledge the people who reviewed early drafts of the document:
Steve London (N2IC), Frank Riley (KK0K), Don Snodgrass (KG9OM), Rob
Stampfli (KD8WK), Joe Subich (W4TV) and Jose Maria Trueba (EA2JX). Their
contributions helped me turn the very rough first draft into something
much more readable. Many thanks gentlemen!
