TS-50 with DSP
I am new to this group, and considering adding a TS-50 to my
collection. I like the way it looks, would fit nicely on my desk, and
seems to be a good rig from the times I have used one.
Wondering about the DSP implementation for the TS-50, described here:
Any experience with this?
- If it's anything like that used in the little Icom 703
and 718 series (audio DSP), it's worth it.
DSP on SSB is like having a "smart squelch" that
closes between syllables! It's great.

- I've found that what helps my TS50 most is a good speaker. Not one
of those little cubes that you get at the Hamfests either. I like
something like the old intercom speakers in a wood box that was made
to hang on the wall.
Although I haven't tried the unit you're looking at it looks good.
If the price doesn't bother you, give it a try.
I bought a Timewave DSP 9+ on Ebay for around $50 and it does
wonders. I've used it on both a TS50 and an old 706. It's not internal
of course so it takes up a bit more room. On the other hand, it sounds
like you're using it in the house on your desk rather than mobile or
portable so that's not much of a problem. Not being internal means
that you can use it on any rig. Not just the TS50.
All the best,
