    • TS-480HXE


DX Distinction— Creative Concept, Elegant Engineering


200W output (50MHz: 100W) DC 13.8V
operation: The TS-480HX is a highly portable
rig offering 200W output (50MHz: 100W) —
making it ideal for both base station and DX’ing

100W model: The 100W TS-480SAT is
additionally equipped with a built-in automatic
antenna tuner.

TX/RX AF DSP: 16-bit AF digital signal processing
offers such powerful features as noise reduction,
TX/RX equalizer, and AF filters.

Compact construction: As well as being
designed for compactness, both models are
supplied with a convenient carrying bracket
that’s perfect for any DX’pedition.


Separate LCD control panel with speaker:
Sporting a large amber LCD with backlit keys,
the standalone control panel can be positioned
anywhere up to 4 metres from the main unit.


Continuous RX: 500kHz (VFO: 30kHz) to 60MHz


TX covers all Amateur bands 1.8MHz to 50MHz


Other features include a quad-mixer that provides
RX dynamic range in the TS-950 class, PSK31
compatibility, packet cluster tune (with TM-D700E),
PC-based control, and optional IF filters.


One Rig to Rule Them All
— Kenwood Engineering at Its Finest

As a go-anywhere HF/50MHz all-mode transceiver, Kenwood’s
new TS-480HX/SAT is well ahead of the pack when it comes to
advanced electronic engineering, convenient features
and ease of operation.


High RF power output
Equipped with a twin final section featuring splitter and
combiner circuitry, the TS-480HX can provide up to
200 watts RF output (50MHz: 100W) with a DC 13.8V
power supply. The TS-480SAT delivers up to 100 watts.

Separate Power Sources
The 200W TS-480HX features two power terminals (DC1,
DC2) for separate supply to each half of the twin final
section; voltage balance is optimized to ensure stable output.
This arrangement allows for use of two PS-53 power
supplies or a single 41A power source.

Twin cooling fans
When used for extended periods, the heat build-up
inside a compact transceiver can be a serious concern,
reducing its working life. But the components in the
heavy-duty TS-480HX/SAT are designed to withstand
heat. What is more, it is equipped with a die-cast
aluminium chassis and twin fans for enhanced cooling

efficiency. And since the control
panel is separate from the
main unit, the fans are able
to generate a powerful
airflow from front to
back. As a result,
you can rely on this
transceiver to transmit
for 30 minutes*
without having to
power down.
*This figure is supplied for reference purposes only and depends on there being an ambient temperature
of 25º C, antenna SWR of 1.2 or less, and nothing to obstruct the air flow generated by the cooling fans.

RX dynamic range
A quad-mixer provides RX dynamic range equivalent to
that of the TS-950 class (at 50 kHz separation).

CW support
There is a full range of CW features, including auto tune.
When in SSB mode, a simple key-press will switch
automatically to CW — very handy for 50MHz operations,
especially if combined with slow scan. Another convenient
feature is the ability to record three different messages for
quick transmission during contests. You can choose
between full and semi-break-in; for the former the delay
time between key release and active receive mode can
be set for between 50ms and 1000ms in 50ms steps.
Other CW features include pitch control (400-1000Hz),
side tone monitor with 10-step volume setting, an
electronic keyer, microphone paddle mode and CW
reverse mode.

IF filters (option)
Optionally available for
more intense operations
are 500Hz and 270Hz
band CW narrow IF filters
(YF-107C, YF-107CN), as
well as a 1.8kHz band
SSB narrow IF filter
(YF-107SN). Any two of
these IF filters can be installed inside the transceiver.
Thanks to a 16-bit digital signal processor offering
double-precision arithmetic operations (equivalent
to 32-bit processing), a
100MHz clock and 16-
bit A/D & D/A converters,
the TS-480HX/SAT
offers many powerful

Digital noise limiter (DNL)
With three level settings, the DNL is highly effective in
removing even the pulse noise that cannot be eliminated
with conventional analogue circuitry and noise blankers. For
extra clarity, however, it can be used in conjunction with a
noise blanker, which removes pulse noise at the IF stage.

Beat cancel (SSB/AM only)
DSP will also cancel out
multiple beats falling
within the AF filter range.
Choose BC1 to remove
weak and/or continuous
beat interference, or BC2
to handle intermittent
beat, like that of a CW

Noise reduction
NR1 is a line enhanced
filter with 10 level settings
(including auto) — great
for extracting a target
signal. A good choice for
CW operations is NR2
(SPAC), adjustable in 2ms
increments (2~20ms); it
can suppress noise at the
same frequency as the
target signal, allowing it to
pull a weak target signal
out from the surrounding

TX/RX equalizer
The equalizer offers flat (default), high boost (2 types),
Formant pass, bass boost (2 types), conventional and
user* settings, separately for transmit and receive.
*Configurable using the ARCP-480 radio control
