THANK YOU
THANK YOU
Thank you for choosing this KENWOOD TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 transceiver. It has been developed by a team of engineers determined to continue the tradition of excellence and innovation in KENWOOD transceivers. This transceiver features dual Digital Signal Processing (DSP) units to process IF and AF signals. By taking maximum advantage of DSP technology, the TS-2000(X)/ TS-B2000 gives you enhanced interference reduction capabilities and improves the quality of audio that you transmit without installing additional analog filters. You will notice the differences when you fight QRM and QRN. As you learn how to use this transceiver, you will also find that KENWOOD is pursuing "user friendliness". For example, each time you change the Menu No. in Menu mode, you will see scrolling messages on the display that tell you what you are selecting. Though user friendly, this transceiver is technically sophisticated and some features may be new to you. Consider this manual to be a personal tutorial from the designers. Allow the manual to guide you through the learning process now, then act as a reference in the coming years.

PRECAUTIONS
Please observe the following precautions to prevent fire, personal injury, and transceiver damage: Connect the transceiver only to a power source described in this manual or as marked on the transceiver itself. Route all power cables safely. Ensure the power cables can neither be stepped upon nor pinched by items placed near or against the cables. Pay particular attention to locations near AC receptacles, AC outlet strips, and points of entry to the transceiver. Take care not to drop objects or spill liquid into the transceiver through enclosure openings. Metal objects, such as hairpins or needles, inserted into the transceiver may contact voltages resulting in serious electrical shocks. Never permit children to insert any objects into the transceiver. Do not attempt to defeat methods used for grounding and electrical polarization in the transceiver, particularly involving the power input cable. Adequately ground all outdoor antennas for this transceiver using approved methods. Grounding helps protect against voltage surges caused by lightning. It also reduces the chance of a build-up of static charge.
EXAMPLE OF ANTENNA GROUNDING ANTENNA LEAD IN WIRE ANTENNA DISCHARGE UNIT GROUNDING CONDUCTORS ELECTRIC SERVICE EQUIPMENT GROUND CLAMPS POWER SERVICE GROUNDING ELECTRODE SYSTEM











Locate the transceiver away from heat sources such as a radiator, stove, amplifier or other devices that produce substantial amounts of heat. Do not use volatile solvents such as alcohol, paint thinner, gasoline or benzene to clean the cabinet of the transceiver. Use a clean cloth with warm water or a mild detergent. Disconnect the input power cable from the power source when the transceiver is not used for long periods of time. Remove the transceiver's enclosure only to do accessory installations described in this manual or accessory manuals. Follow provided instructions carefully, to avoid electrical shocks. If unfamiliar with this type of work, seek assistance from an experienced individual, or have a professional technician do the task. Enlist the services of qualified personnel in the following cases: a) The power supply or plug is damaged. b) Objects have fallen or liquid has spilled into the transceiver. c) The transceiver has been exposed to rain. d) The transceiver is operating abnormally or performance has seriously degraded. e) The transceiver has been dropped or the enclosure damaged.

GROUND CLAMP









Minimum recommended distance for an outdoor antenna from power lines is one and one-half times the vertical height of the associated antenna support structure. This distance allows adequate clearance from the power lines if the support structure fails for any reason. Locate the transceiver so as not to interfere with its ventilation. Do not place books or other equipment on the transceiver that may impede the free movement of air. Allow a minimum of 4 inches (10 cm) between the rear of the transceiver and the wall or operating desk shelf. Do not use the transceiver near water or sources of moisture. For example, avoid use near a bathtub, sink, swimming pool, or in a damp basement or attic. The presence of an unusual odor or smoke is often a sign of trouble. Immediately turn the power OFF and remove the power cable. Contact a KENWOOD service station or your dealer for advice.

INSTALLATION
Install and connect an antenna system {page 1}. Install and connect a DC power supply {page 2}.

Install a ground system that satisfies DC and RF grounding requirements {page 1}.

Connect all accessories to the transceiver {pages 3, 94}. Accessories include the following: Microphone Headphones Antenna Tuner External Speaker CW Key RTTY Equipment Computer Linear Amplifier TNC/ Multimode Remote Panel Communications Processor

Install lightning protection to protect the antenna system, your personal safety, and your property {page 1}.

ANTENNA CONNECTION
An antenna system consists of an antenna, feed line, and ground. The transceiver can give excellent results if the antenna system and its installation are given careful attention. Use a properly adjusted 50 antenna of good quality, a high-quality 50 coaxial cable, and first-quality connectors. All connections must be clean and tight. After making the connections, match the impedance of the coaxial cable and antenna so that the SWR is 1.5:1 or less. High SWR will cause the transmit output to drop and may lead to radio frequency interference to consumer products such as stereo receivers and televisions. You may even interfere with your own transceiver. Reports that your signal is distorted could indicate that your antenna system is not efficiently radiating the transceiver's power. Connect your primary HF/ 50 MHz antenna feed line to ANT 1 on the rear of the transceiver. If you are using two HF/ 50 MHz antennas, connect the secondary antenna to ANT 2. Connect VHF (144 MHz), UHF (430/ 440 MHz), and 1.2 GHz (TS-2000/ TS-B2000 Optional) antennas to their respective antenna connectors on the rear of the transceiver. Refer to page 13 for the location of the antenna connectors.

GROUND CONNECTION
At the minimum, a good DC ground is required to prevent such dangers as electric shock. For superior communications results, a good RF ground is required, against which the antenna system can operate. Both of these conditions can be met by providing a good earth ground for your station. Bury one or more ground rods or a large copper plate under the ground, then connect this to the transceiver GND terminal. Use heavy gauge wire or a copper strap, cut as short as possible, for this connection. Do not use a gas pipe, an electrical conduit, or a plastic water pipe as a ground.

LIGHTNING PROTECTION
Even in areas where lightning storms are less common, there are usually a limited number of storms each year. Consider carefully how to protect your equipment and home from lightning. The installation of a lightning arrestor is a start, but there is more that you can do. For example, terminate your antenna system transmission lines at an entry panel that you install outside your home. Ground this entry panel to a good outside ground, then connect the appropriate feed lines between the entry panel and your transceiver. When a lightning storm occurs, disconnecting the feed lines from your transceiver will ensure added protection.

x

x

Transmitting without connecting an antenna or other matched load may damage the transceiver. Always connect the antenna to the transceiver before transmitting. All fixed stations should be equipped with a lightning arrester to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and transceiver damage.

Note: The transceiver's protection circuit will activate when the SWR is greater than 2.5:1; however, do not rely on protection to compensate for a poorly functioning antenna system.

DC POWER SUPPLY CONNECTION
In order to use this transceiver, you need a separate 13.8 V DC power supply that must be purchased separately. Do not directly connect the transceiver to an AC outlet. Use the supplied DC power cable to connect the transceiver to a regulated power supply. Do not substitute a cable with smaller gauge wires. The current capacity of the power supply must be 20.5 A peak or more.
Fuse holders (Fuse 25 A) Black Red

REPLACING FUSES
If a fuse blows, determine the cause then correct the problem. Only after the problem has been resolved, replace the blown fuse with a new one with the specified ratings. If newly installed fuses continue to blow, disconnect the power plug and contact a KENWOOD service station or your dealer for assistance.

s External Speakers (EXT.SP1/ EXT.SP2) This transceiver has 2 independent receivers. Thus, it can output 2 separate audio signals. As a default, the transceiver mixes both audio signals internally and outputs them from the internal speaker. On the rear panel of the transceiver, there are 2 external speaker jacks. If an external speaker is connected to EXP.SP1, the internal speaker will mute. If the speaker is connected to EXT.SP2, both the external speaker and the internal speaker will function. Use only external speakers with an impedance of 4 to 8 (8 nominal). These jacks accept only 3.5 mm (1/8") diameter, 2-conductor (mono) plugs.
External speaker

Do not connect headphones to this jack. The high audio output of this jack could damage your hearing.

TS-2000 TS-2000X TS-B2000

s Keys for CW (PADDLE and KEY) For CW operation using the internal electronic keyer, connect a keyer paddle to the PADDLE jack. For CW operation without using the internal electronic keyer, connect a straight key, semi-automatic key (bug), electronic keyer, or the CW keyed output from a Multimode Communications Processor (MCP) to the KEY jack. The PADDLE and KEY jacks mate with a 6.3 mm (1/4") 3-conductor plug and a 3.5 mm (1/8") 2-conductor plug respectively. External electronic keyers or MCPs must use positive keying to be compatible with this transceiver. Use a shielded cable between the key and the transceiver.
Note: Due to the functionality of the internal electronic keyer, you may find it unnecessary to connect both a paddle and another type of keyer unless you want to use a PC-based keyer for CW. Read the "ELECTRONIC KEYER" section {page 42} to become familiar with the internal keyer.
