Re: Is the Kenwood TS680S a solid state transceiver?
Solid state means transistors or ics but no tubes, if it has tubes it will have air holes in the case where you can see the tubes light up when it is on.Im pretty sure its a solid state rig unless it is really old as most are now solid states and have been for years.

Very little information about the situation of the transceiver is provided, it might be a complex one. The Kenwood TS-940SAT features a built-in automatic antenna tuner covers the amateur bands 160 through 10 meters. It is advisable for you to reinstall the transceiver and follow the right set up step to see if it works out eventually.

73s I have heard of similar problems and some were heating related. the best is to check if your rig is heating up causing it to switch off and lose memory when switched back on. I have a buddy who had an unusual experience where he actually dropped frequencies so low that he could pick up ordinary radio frequency and also go into bands like 27mhz and 25mhz. But once switched off, the rig worked normal again. If you are experiencing heat problems then i suggest you put in a fan and remove all dust from inside the rig. You could probably also be having problems with power supply either internal or external. If all else fails, refer to a good repair shop this type of radios are very sensitive.
