Question about Computers & Internet
I HAVE A KENWOOD TS 2000 AMATUER RADIO TRANSCEIVER WHICH I HAVE THE FEELING,HAS GONE SLIGHTLY DEAF ON RX.THE DEALER WHOM I PURCHASED IT FROM HAS TESTED IT AND RETURNED IT TO ME,QUOTE NOTHING WRONG WITH IT !! I HAVE COMPARED THE RX TO OTHER RADIO TRANSCEIVERS I OWN AND OPERATE AND THEY ARE MOST CERTAINLY MUCH MORE SENSITIVE ON RX !! ( I AM A FULLY LICENCED RADIO AMATUER )
THE TS 2000 UNDER WARRANTY,SO IS THIS A PROBLEM ANYONE CAN ASSIST ME WITH.IE:- HAS ANYONE THE SAME PROBLEM,IS THERE A CURE,OR IS IT DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE TS.2000 IS A"SHACK IN A BOX,A BLACK ONE AT THAT IT WOULD SEEM"
I have the same problem with my TS2000 , in VHF I can heard small signals only if I turn on the PRE Amplifier ...
It start just few hours of use .

A lot of TS-2000 radios suffer from attanuated receive, it is caused by a design problem of the transceiver.
The cause is leakage within the 455KHz ceramic filters, the manufacturer states in its datasheet that coupling capacitors should be used and Kenwood,in its wisdom opted not to bother to fit the required capacitors.
The Toko filters are not easy to obtain and may attract a lengthy lead time.

I had a similar problem which turned out to be high resistance contacts on the K3 relay which switches the inbuilt antanna tuner in or out.Go into the menu Number 27 and toggle the antanna tuner on and off on receive.There should be no change in received signal level (assuming the tuner is tuned up on the frequency)On my unit the level was dropping up to 30 dB I Replaced the relay which cured the problem.
