I am new to hobby. Have my General. I want to set up an HF station. In the line of Kenwood what radio would be too old to buy used? Which model numbers? I am looking at a TS120 and a TS440. Any help would be great. Thanks Stan

My quick answer is you will probably be happy with either for a while then want to upgrade.

You might check out qrz or eham for a better answer to this question. Both sites seem to have a lot more amateur traffic than RIB. Just remember this is almost an emotional question for some, kind of like asking a farmer why he has red or green tractors. Whatever answer you get someone else will disagree with.

Try the forums at or Both are pretty good places if your focus is strictly amateur.
