    Main Rx is about 20 dB worse NF than the Sub. Measured all bands 3.5 through 432 with 15.5 ENR source. Note I had done this when brand new and now it is ~ 20 dB worse also measured by 3 dB rise method with calibrated sig gen. I haven't opened it up yet - but appears to be at or after the 10.695 MHz Rx stage from looking at the service manual, as that is where the upper band front ends are mux'd in with the HF-50 MHz front end.

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.

I have a KENWOOD TS-940SAT HF Transceiver that powers up with the TX indicator on, no power output and no receive.


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.

Yeasu FT990 Gone Deaf


This could be many things but a good place to look is the TX/RX and ATTENUATOR relays. These are problem areas in a lot of radios. This is a complicated radio and if you need to ask this question I would suggest you find someone that knows how to work on these. It will require a fair bit of skill to find the problem and replace the parts. The radio has a lot of surface mount components which are difficult to work with without causing more, and often, expensive damage.

How can I resolve the B1681 problem


the PATS tranceiver signal is the radio signal sent by your key to the Passive Anti Theft System. if you're setting that code, then either your PCM doesn't recognize the key you used to try to start your car, or your key has gone bad. it could also be the transceiver itself (sensor mounted around the ignition cylinderon the steering column) gone bad. good luck

Front panel turns off


Have you performed a FULL reset on the TS-2000?
To perform a full reset:

With the power off press and hold down the A=B button and with the other hand turn on the TS-2000.
After that you will have to press the A=B one more time. The radio will reset itself,
and the display will show 14.000 MHz in the main band, and 144.000 MHz in the sub band.

Please let me know if it worked for you.
