 75332506687249980 Kenwood TS 930S w/ Antenna Tuner Amateur Radio, 1 Owner

KENWOOD TS-930S ONE OWNER RADIO -Low Starting Price - No Reserve- Here is a nice radio for the beginner or as a back rig. I have tested it out (see details below) and used it on the air to make contacts. Please read on for the history of this rig. This came from the estate of a ham friend who passed away about 10 years ago. His wife who is also is a ham has been using it sparingly since then. She only checked into a weather net a few times a week so it hasn't had much use since her husband passed away. Her health is failing and she has not been on the air for about 2 years, so she is giving up on ham radio and does not need the radio. You can find plenty of information on the 930S specifications by searching the internet. According to paperwork I have found the radio was purchased May 1985 with a repair by Kenwood in 1992. Serial # 5080182 This auction includes: Kenwood TS-930S transceiver with built in antenna tuner. Boomset Microphone and Heil footswitch. (I am not sure of the brand of the microphone. It may be an older Heil but I am not sure.) Power cable Original Manual Electrical condition: I let the rig sit with power on several times for at least 2 hours and then operated in the SSB and CW modes. I had good audio reports using the microphone included. CW was good and clean and the side tone worked properly. The digital readout and RIT are working. The front panel controls that I used seem to be functioning properly and the dial rotates smoothly. Power output looks good on all bands 160-10 (this rig includes the WARC bands). As you can see the watt meter (not included in auction) was reading 110 watts out. As near as I can tell the internal antenna tuner is working. It is pretty noisy but on an antenna with an SWR of 3.5:1 it brought it down to 2:1. I just tested it on 1 band. I remember that Kenwood had trouble with the antenna tuner in this rig, but it does have a switch so that it doesn't have to be used and a separate tuner could do the job instead if needed. The receive audio quality was the nice old Kenwood audio out of the onboard speaker. The controls are nice and big and there's no need to learn menus, etc like the newer rigs which can be nice for a newcomer. Physical Condition: From Smoking Environment: Really the only drawback I could find physically was that the original owner was a smoker. I was worried about this fact when I picked up the radio from the XYL, however the XYL is a nonsmoker. I know that a lot of folks are concerned with the smoking environment more these days so I want to give full disclosure here. Personally, I had difficulty smelling much smoke which surprised me, but my smeller isn't too good anymore. I had a female smeller check it out and she could definitely smell it, especially after the radio ran for a while, but she was also surprised that it wasn't worse. I suspect that over the years it has lost some of the smoke smell and perhaps with some deep cleaning it could be minimalized. Anyhow it is sold AS IS with the smoke smell so potential buyers please be aware of this. Otherwise the radio has a nice looking front panel, original knobs, no extra holes or dents, and no significant scratches that I could find. It has the lifter feet on the front bottom and the rubber feet on one end for servicing. A matching SP-930 speaker is being auctioned separately. **Please read all the information above and ask any questions before bidding. This radio is guaranteed to not be DOA, but it is being sold AS IS. I have a 7 day guarantee, but returns are at the buyer's expense for shipping and insurance. I have done my best to test the major functions of the equipment and it was placed on the air, but I could not check every function of the radio. Thank you for looking.*** Buyer pays for shipping.
