Condition:  This was bought by me from a radio society friend on the 15 May 1994. He was a very keen contester and the radio had served as a second radio for monitoring other frequencies        and other occasional use. The TS-430S served as my main radio for a few years before I bought another Kenwood radio, since then it has been my standby radio with occasional use                on special event stations.  It has been well cared for and is still in good working order.  Users have been non-smokers and there are only minimal marks on the case.

       It has been recently used on-air with QSO’s on 80, 40 and 20 metres in SSB and CW modes with good reports each way.

  Carrying case:  A purpose made plywood storage and carrying case is included there being no other packaging. Size overall: 385 x 160 x 327 mm approx.

 Photographs. In addition to the photograph shown here there are 4 other photographs available. If you would like to see these please send me an email with your direct e-mail address     and I will send then to you as attachments.



Collection only in South Warwickshire. The plywood case is not considered adequate for safe and sure shipping and there is no other packing available. For collection only there is no extra charge.

Collection - An  alternative is offered, with no packing, as above  -  If the buyer is within about 50 miles radius of Stratford-upon-Avon it might be possible to meet for a hand over somewhere about half way for payment of the cost of my petrol for my round trip.
