TS-590 the K3 killer â€¦. ???
It could be possible, but to demonstrate who is the killer we need facts and features palpable, not noise. I would like toÂ explain my point of view on the above subject.Â Please excuse me if I may sound â€œaggressiveâ€ but we have to put light on same specific points to make real comparisons. K3 does not need a violin fiddlerâ€¦
For a comparison we do need tests that can avoidÂ personal interest orÂ love â€¦ First test could be the comparison of TS590 and K3 circuit diagram, looking at the receiver path, although we should look at the TX area for reduction of spuries emitted. Second test, an independent review like the ones made by Peter Hart, G3SJX, and published in RadCom (RSGB). Peter is a gentleman and does not usually â€œoffendâ€ the manufacturers but reports his reviews quite clearly, although he does not write as much as he was doing in the past century. If you look properly at Peterâ€™s measurement tables, you will understand the quality of equipments from the â€œmeasurementsâ€ point of you. K3 Review has been already published with good reports, see RadCom July 2008.
