Digital signal processing at the IF stage is now a reality with the Kenwood TS-870S HF transceiver. DSP technology uses a dedicated computer chip to convert analog waveforms into digital information in real-time, providing the opportunity to filter and enhance the quality of the signal before it is reconverted into analog form for the human ear. This design uses two state-of-the-art 24-bit 20 MIPS DSP chips that provide for receiving enhancements to bring signals out of the noise. Imagine over 100dB out of pass band attenuation with virtually no signal loss by the DSP filter! Imagine CW bandwidth adjustable to 50 Hz. Advanced speech processing with transmit equalization that will make you the first in pile-ups! This radio also features RIT and XIT and a multifunction meter. Plus complete computer operation and control of the TS-870S is possible with supplied Windows™ software and a built-in RS-232C port [DB9].

The built-in automatic antenna tuner works on all bands in both transmit and receive modes. Supplied with MC-43S hand mic. The TS-870S requires 13.8 VDC at 20.5 Amps.
