Kenwood TS-520 HF Transceiver Capacitor Replacement Kit

This is a complete electrolytic capacitor replacement kit (except the 100uf/500V cans - check my "view other items" for these caps) for the Kenwood TS-520 transceiver. The TS-520 is truly a collector's item for the vintage ham radio enthusiast and represents one of the best of the '70's in HF gear. I have been restoring vintage ham radio equipment for years, and electrolytic capacitors have a design life span which one has to recognize if the intent is to keep your TS-520 running for a long time to come.

Included in the kit is an installation guide to help those along who might feel a bit nervous doing this type of board work.

** There is no retuning of the radio required as the capacitors being changed are power supply related, or audio coupling/decoupling. Minor adjustment of the VOX controls may be required when new capacitors are installed.

** Installation Time is approximately 4 hours from start to finish for an experienced technician. For all others take your time and enjoy, its a great project!
