Hi all,
I'm selling my Kenwood TS-790A with 1.2ghz, voice module, matching SP-31 external speaker, and (NIB) IF-232 computer module. 
I'm basically selling most of my gear due to failing health.
The TS-790 is one of the best VHF/UHF radio's ever made. If you check the reviews for this radio you will see what I'm talking about.
CTCSS/PL encode is built in so getting into tone activated systems is a snap.
The radio does not have PL decoder modules but those are still available
through 3rd party makers if you need them. Most people don't.
I have the original box for the radio but I'm not sure if I have the speaker box.
I do have the manual but it's a bit dog eared from use.
Sorry, but I will not seperate the package.
Cosmetically, I would rate the radio an 8+ on a scale of 10 only because of a very small scratch on the far right side of the display. If you didn't know it was there you wouldn't know it. It's really not worth mentioning but I trey to decribe everything the best I can.
Also the plastic carrying handle on the side has been romoved by a previous owner.
The screws are still there but the handle has been removed.
Electrically, the radio is a 10. NO problems whatsoever. It meets or exceeds
all manufacturers ratings.
Will sell all for $1300.00 plus shipping.
Thanks for looking,
