I don't have a TS-2k, but it does have a separate RX input.  At least one person mentioned using it with a separate RX converter on SO-50 which gets around the internal birdie.  Probably not a cost effective solution unless you happen to have one laying around.

As for a new Kenwood, I have been asking them that for years, literally.  The answer in the past has always been that it is under active consideration.  Real Soon Now.
