Kenwood TS-480SAT HF and 6 Meter Ham Radios For Sale
View Current Kenwood TS-480 Transceivers For Sale
The Kenwood TS-480SAT transceiver operates all HF bands plus 6 meters in all modes! The SAT version adds
an auto tuner which makes multiband dipoles and mobile antennas with challenging standing wave ratios
history! The face has a clean, concise appeal to it and it has that warm, high quality Kenwood sound that we
have come to love (audio is one of things this company doesn't neglect in its design).
With its nifty detachable face, the Kenwood
TS-480 SAT is meant to work well in either a fixed or mobile environment. Because it's a little more
stout and larger in size compared to most mobile amateur radios, with its extension cable you have the option of
placing the main body on the floorboard, back seat, or even the trunk (which is also a great theft
deterrent). The face to body is connected with normal (and affordable) CAT 5 cabling (a 12 foot Cat 5
extension cable comes with it), so making long runs usually isn't a problem with this ham radio.
As far as performance and features are concerned, you get a lot of value with the Kenwood TS-480 (check out some
of new and used prices at the links above or below). Not only do you get general coverage receiver along with
HF bands and 6 meters, this mobile/base radio hybrid does things better than many of the top of the line
transceivers today. For instance, the SAT and HX models are one of the best models out there for remote and
pc control. Kenwood actually built dedicated (free) software so you can interface and control this
transceiver from any standard computer at no additional cost to the consumer! You also get
some advance performance features such as a Quad Mixer, which makes its receiver one of the best in terms
of dynamic range performance! It also includes both DSP Noise Reduction and Digital Noise Filters in
addition to a receive and transmit audio equalizer!
