I really like the TS830S and it is one of my favorite radios. Somehow I lost drive on the band. I took it to Ron Crisp WB4VZN in Union SC for him to look at it. Ron has developed a reputation for being the "radio whisperer" when it comes to Kenwoods and he did not disappoint. He put it on the scope and with a few screwdriver turns, he put the 40 meter band back to life on transmit. It gets a full 100W power out still. Thanks Ron for all the help.
