Subject: TS-2000X 12 month review
My congraduations to Kenwood. Very solid radio. ACP-2000 works very well compared to others. Mods listed work great. I am looking
for the programming model for the rig and flash protocol. I have the tech manuals but they don't describe the details of the unit for
software. The only limitation on this radio is the antenna tuner. Its only good for 1:1 to 3:1 range of tuning. I use an external tuner MFJ 969 and it works well if the internal tuner is set to off. This rig also is great for ARPS using UIview and Street Atlas 9.
Keep up the great work on your site. Its invaluable.
Cheers K7BIT and give my regards to 1 Harbour Exchange & Island Garden. Kinda miss ole London town.
TS-2000 modification information (TX and RX)
I got the modification information on the TS-2000 from reliable sources recently. The info. seems to be correct. My TS-2000 (K-type)
worked.
1. Remove the top and bottom cover.
2. Loosen the 4 screws that tighen the front panel.
3. Pull the front panel forward, holding the upper part.
4. You will see a fan on the left.
5. At the bottom right of the fan, there are jumpers.
●
Remove R52 to expand the RX frequency.
●
Remove R53 to expand the TX frequency.
●
Remove R54 to expand the features.
(Cross-band Repeat, SkyCommand, External Remote and etc.)
R52 and R54 have been already removed on my transceiver.
After the modification, it transmits:
1.705 - 30MHz, 49-54MHz, 142-152MHz, 420-450MHz.
* It does not expand too much, though :-(
Oh, I forgot one important thing.
You must perform ALL RESET by pressing and hold [A=B] key when you turn on the transceiver. (You will lose all the memory data).

Kenwood TS-2000 The S-meter Adjustement
Contact author:
N7BUI
While going into the service menu to adjust the S-meter, I wrote down the original settings that were in each position. I noticed a few
others were asking for them. This is for a Kenwood TS-2000, firmware V1.04 purchased in August 2005.

Improving RX below 1.7Mhz
AM Broadcasting stations are poorly received by the TS-2000 as it comes from factory. Fortunately, there is a quick and easy solution. It
only takes a Phillips screw driver. No soldering is required.
●
Remove the bottom cover.
●
Locate plastic mini-jumper labeled "Local / DX" near antenna connector
●
Move jumper from "Local" to the "DX" position.
●
Replace bottom cover.
Done!
73's from Alex (N3GX)
Subject: IMPROVING RX BELOW 1.7MHz ON TS-2000
*REMOVE THE BOTTOM COVER.
*LOCATE THE PLASTIC 2 PIN MINI JUMPER NEAR THE "N" TYPE UHF ANTENNA CONNECTOR MARKED
NORMAL / DX.
*REMOVE THE JUMPER FROM THE NORMAL ( CN4 ) POSITION AND REPLACE IT TO THE DX ( CN3 ) POSITION.
*REPLACE BOTTOM COVER.
* NO RADIO RESET REQUIRED
TS-2000 RX mod
Some Rig came from the factory with R54 removed. I removed R52 myself. Then I did a system reset.
New sub band RX is 118 to 174 mhz and 220 to 512 mhz.
This includes the 220 mhz ham band.
I did not remove R53 to expand the TX frequency but the RX mod works fine.
