Kenwood TS-930/TS940 XCVR Upgrade: Ben Johson WB2GUK
I recently pilot tested installing Compudigital's Kenwood TS-930 / TS-940 PA Replacement on my TS-930. I had previously upgraded the power supply, several months before the PA failed 16 months ago. The installation was straight forward and shouldn't take more than 2 hours at most with preparation and familiarization.
Jeff Hilliard and Dave Phillips spent a lot of time ensuring a good product. But, there is a wait list. If you have a TS-930 or TS-940 this is the easy answer, if it's in your budget.
The power supply upgrade is highly recommended and circumvents the inevitable; a power supply failure and it reduces the weight of the transceiver significantly.
