Kenwood TS120V

Picked up a second hand Kenwood TS120V.

I have a soft spot for these little radios. Previously owned one which I regret selling.

Was able to pick this one up for a $120. Full power output. Receiver great. She is a bit rough.

Need to address;

  • Cosmetic
    • front panel
    • surface rust
  • Logical
    • PLL Unlock, 15 meters only (Dots on display)
      • internal clean
      • Re solder joints
      • Realign
 
Taking the top off has revealed a straight but dirty radio.
Bit to do here…
