The TS-60S is a 6 m all-mode transceiver that's engineered for excellence.
It's small enough for mobile or DX-pedition use, yet delivers an impressive
90W output. Ample power is matched by outstanding performance, thanks to
100 memory channels, AIP for superior dynamic range, and advanced
interference-reduction measures. There's also a friendly dual-menu system, microprocessor-controlled
DDS with "fuzzy logic" control, TF-SET, and everything you need
for split-frequency operations.

TS-60S in detail:
High power output
Despite its small size and light weight, the TS-60S is equipped with a pair
of MRF492 final transistors that enable it to deliver as much as 90 W in
SSB, CW and FM modes (23 W in AM mode).
DDS (Direct Digital Synthesizer) with fuzzy logic control
Kenwood has incorporated "fuzzy logic" control circuitry, so the
main encoder tunes smoothly from 5 Hz steps to fast forward (200 Hz step)
mode. Torque can be adjusted to suit individual preference.
100 memory channels
There are 100 channels for independent storage of transmit and receive parameters
such as frequency, mode, and filter setting. Memory shift enables transfer
of data to the VFOs.
TF-SET (TX frequency set) function
TF-SET is available when the receive frequency is locked, so you can avoid
losing a targeted station.
Comprehensive interference reduction
Assuring first-class receive performance is our AIP (Advanced Intercept
Point) circuitry -- capable of raising dynamic range to 105 dB. You are
free to choose high sensitivity for simplex or weak-signal work, or a high
intercept point to minimize intermod or adjacent channel interference. In
addition, the TS-60S is equipped with IF shift (SSB & CW), a 20 dB attenuator,
CW reverse mode, and a pulse noise blanker. A 500 Hz CW filter (YK-107C)
One press on the MENU key brings versatile control over almost all TS-60S
functions, including tone setting. The user-friendly menus -- which are
also accessible via the supplied microphone -- are divided into two groups
(A & B) depending on frequency of use.
Switchable AGC circuit (SLOW/FAST)
AGC (automatic gain control) ensures optimum receiver operation in SSB,
AM and CW modes under all signal strength conditions.
Relay & external ALC terminals
The seasoned enthusiast will welcome the RCA jacks for relay output -- connecting
to a linear amplifier -- as well for automatic level control.
Scan stop modes (TO & CO)
There are two scan stop modes: time-operated (stops on a busy channel for
5 seconds, then resumes), and carrier-operated (stops on a busy channel
and resumes scan 2 seconds after the signal drops out).
The TS-60S comes with the MC-47 remote-control microphone with 4 programmable
function keys. You may choose up to 4 menu functions to control with these
keys -- ideal for mobile operation.
