The Kenwood 590 has now been in my shack a couple of weeks and I must say it is a nice little rig. Keeping with the nice Kenwood audio I remembered from years ago. It is a pleasure to
listen to. I worked a few stations during the recent WPX contest and had no trouble making contacts. I have acquired a amp relay cable for it to pair up with the AL-811 and works quite well.
Think I will hang on to this rig for a while.
