Kenwood R-820 Transceive Instructions
The R-820 is perhaps the finest receiver ever built for Amateur use, a triple conversion with VBT, IF shift, final IF of 50KHz, great stability, quiet, and it sold for a 'mere' $1100 in 1979. It has all the features of the receiver in a TS-830S, plus triple conversion. It weighs in like a Kenwood hybrid transceiver, built as solidly as one could ever want.
When teamed with a TS-820S in a full transceive configuration, it arguably produces one of the finest Amateur transmitter/receiver combinations ever devised. The R-820 is one of the rarest receivers around, and if you find one, be sure to hold onto it. There are few that can take its place.
