The TS-2000 and TS-480 (all variants of both) are listed as discontinued by the popular retailers. Has Kenwood gotten out of the game for good? Is this a COVID thing? Sorry if I missed an earlier thread; I searched but saw nothing.
The only person that knows is old man Kenwood. He’s been up at his mountain lair for over a decade. Some say they have seen a glow at night from his hilltop and a strange noise that sounds like RTTY in the wind. One never knows what old man Kenwood has planned. Until then I enjoy a 480SAT when mobile.
I expect we will hear about anything new at the Tokyo Ham Fair, but that has been cancelled. Kenwood does’t churn them out like others, so we wait and enjoy what we have. You didn’t miss something.
