I am always amazed when I hear someone say the TS 2000 does not have a  
good receiver, mine is great!!!

The TS 2000x I have hears all satellites very well.

Remember there is an internal preamp on the TS2000.

On hf it just seems to amplify the noise level so I leave it off.

But I leave it turned on all the time on vhf, uhf and it automatically  
comes on when you turn on 1.2.

The last time I used an external preamp was on the KLM Echo 2 back in  
the 70's.

Since then I have used a Kenwood TS700, TS790, and now the TS2000x.

The TS2000x receives (with the internal preamp on for vhf, uhf) about  
the same as my old TS790 did (it did not have an internal preamp).

With M2 antennas, computer tracking and tuning, low loss cable, and  
cable lengths between 50-70 ft I have never had a problem receiving  
any amateur radio sats.
