THE TS-590 FAMILY

The “TS‑590 Family” started life in September 2010, with the introduction of the TS‑590. Kenwood offered three power versions:

        the 100W version (TS‑590S), intended for customers outside Japan.

        the 50W version (TS‑590D) and the 10W version (TS‑590V), for the Japanese domestic market.

The TS‑590 was superseded in October 2014 by the TS‑590G, again produced in three power versions: TS‑590SG (100W), TS‑590DG (50W) and TS‑590VG (10W).

There is little difference in the outward appearance of the TS‑590 and the TS‑590G. The main distinguishing feature between the two is the legend on the front panel: the TS‑590 has the legend DSP, whereas the TS‑590G has the legend HF/50 MHz Transceiver TS-590.

Some of the Kenwood-supplied software has different versions for the TS‑590 and the TS-590G. Here, the suffix after the program name distinguishes between the two. For example, ARCP‑590 (without a suffix) is for use with the TS‑590S/D/V, and ARCP‑590G (with the suffix "G") is for use with the TS‑590SG/DG/VG.
