Thansceves 1 S-530S
The TS-530S HF transceiver is designed in ac
circuit technology, providing wide dynamic rang
selectable filters and IF shift, built-in digital dis
optimum, yet economical, operation on 160 thr
FEATURES: ———
1160-10 Meter Coverage, Including Three New Bands
The TS-530S transmits and receives on all amateur fraquericies
between 1.8 and 29.7 MHz, including the new 10, 18, and 24
MHz bands. It also receives WWV on 10 MHz, handy for check-
ing the calibration of the highly accurate digital display. Operat-
ing modes include LSB, USB, and CW.
ee à are easy to read on the built in, ‘large. six- RE
fluorescent-tube display, backed up by an analog subdial.
The actual receive and transmit frequencies on all modes and
all bands are indicated, by means of a common division of the
10 MHz oscillator frequency for the PLL circuit, calibration
circuit, and frequency counter.
Narrow/Wide Filter Combinations ~~
The “NAR” switch allows sélection of Wide ana narrow band-
widths on CW and or SSB, when one or two optional filters
are installed. The various filter bandwidth mode combinations
are shown in the chart below. (receiving only)
The optional 500 Hz CW filter provides excellent selectivity
for general-purpose and contest operation. The 270 Hz filter
provides a very narrow passband, ideal for DX chasing under
crowded band conditions. The 1.8 kHz SSB filter is especially
handy during contests and in DX pileups, when QRM is heavy.
ТЕ $! Shift Reduces QRM
IF shift is built into the TS- 530$ 1 to allow the IF passband to
be moved around the received signal and away from interfering
signals and sideband splatter. Even greater selectivity is achieved
when an optional YK-88SN (1.8 kHz), YK-88C (500 Hz), or

Wide Receiver Dynamic Range
The receiver section exhibits a very wide dynamic range with
unusually good IMD rejection characteristics, resulting in
greater immunity to strong, local signals. Its MOS FET RF
amplifier operates at a low level of amplification, for improved
IMD characteristics. A higher level of amplification is not re-
quired because of the balanced mixer's low noise figure,
produced by junction FETs. A dual resonator is provided for
each band. The result is a very sensitive receiver section with
excellent dynamic range and a low noise level.
Built-in Speech Processor
The speech processor in the TS- 530$ combines an audio oom-
pression amplifier with change of ALC time constant for extra
audio punch and increased average SSB output power, with
suppressed sideband splatter.
With a pair of 6146B s in the final amplifier, the TS-530S
runs 220 W PEP/180 W DC input on all bands.
‘Advanced Single-Conversion PLL System
The new PLL circuit in the TS-530S eliminates the requirement
for a crystal element for each band. As shown in the block
diagram, the VCO frequency is generated in the PLL circuit
by synthesizing the VFO and CAR frequencies, the 10 MHz
reference frequency supplied by the counter, and the divided
frequency of 500 kHz. Band changing is accomplished by
changing the preset division ratio of the programmable divider
in the PLL. Thus, the need for a heterodyne crystal element for
each operating band is eliminated, resulting in simplified cir-
cuitry and improved overall stability. The single-conversion PLL
system also improves transmit and receive spurious character-
istics, and provides |F shift operation and monodial indication
on any mode.
Adjustable Noise-Blanker Level
Pulse-type (such as ignition) noise is eliminated by the built-in
cordance with Kenwood’s latest, most advanced
e, high sensitivity, very sharp selectivity with
play, speech processor, and other features for
ugh 10 meters.

noise blanker. The noise amplifier's threshold level can be
adjusted by a front-panel control, to enhance the noise blanker's
effectiveness under various noise and signal levels.
RF Attenuator for IMD Rejection
A 20 dB RF attenuator, which can be switched into the re-
ceiver's front end, provides optimum rejection of intermodula-
tion distortion from extremely strong signals.
More Flexibility with Optional VFOs
The optional VFO-240 allows split-frequency operation for
DX chasing, temporary QSY from and fast return to a net
frequency, searching for a clear frequency while maintaining
the original frequency, and other applications — making it a
valuable station addition at an affordable price. For even
greater flexibility, the optional VFO-230 digital VFO operates
in 20 Hz steps and includes five memories — ideal for retaining
net frequencies or DX stations (especially those working by call
areas) for later recall.
Expanded Frequency Coverage
The TS-530S VFO as well as the optional VFO-240 remote
VFO cover more than 50 kHz above and below each 500 kHz
band. Also, the optional VFO-230 remote digital VFO covers
about 100 kHz above and below each band.
Built-in VOX Semi-break-in
A VOX circuit is provided in the TS-530S for optimum SSB
operation as well as semi-break-in operation on CW, (with
sidetone)
Built-in 25 kHz Marker _
The built-in 25 kHz marker, derived from the 10 MHz master
oscillator, provides an accurate frequency reference for the
TS-5630S or any other rig to be calibrated.

slightly off frequency without shifting the transmitter frequen-
cy. The front-panel XIT (Transmitter Incremental Tuning)
shifts only the transmitter frequency, for calling a DX station
that may be listening off frequency.
Attractive Appearance with Rugged Construction
The TS-530S is designed to enhance the appearance of any ham
shack, while providing ease of operation with a functional
layout of controls. The transceiver, with its front panel of rug-
ged alloy die casting and advanced mechanical engineering
throughout, will withstand rough treatment encountered in
virtually any operation.
Amplified Type AGC Circuit
The automatic gain control (AGC) is activated by a tirée:
position (OFF/FAST/SLOW) switch to provide optimum re-
ceiver operation on CW and SSB under all signal-strength
conditions.
‘Amplified Type ALC Circuit
The amplified type automatic level control (ALC) circuit pro-
vides very clean transmit signals.
Built-in AC Power Supply
The TS-530S is a self-contained, compact station with built-in
AC power supply. (modifiable to 240V AC operation.)
Final Cooling Fan
A very quiet cooling fan on the rear panel extends tube life
in the final amplifier.
LED Indicators
LED indicators on the front panel make operation easier by
indicating RIT, XIT, RF attenuator, Calibrator, VFO, and
Speech-processor functions.
Tune Function
A TUNE position on the MODE switch is provided for pread-
justment of the DRIVE control and final tank circuit. In this
position the final screen voltage is reduced approximately 50%,
thereby reducing power to prevent damage to the final tubes.
Multifunction Meter
The meter switch selects ALC current, final plate current,
relative RF output, and high voltage readings.

External Speaker
The SP-230 external speaker matches the TS-530S HF transceiver.
It is a low-distortion speaker with selectable frequency response for high intelligibility in any mode. The frequency re-
sponse is determined by the built-in audio filters, which are effective in improving signal-to- noise-ratio under certain inter-
ference conditions, or when receiving weak signals.
