It is expected that the new Kenwood JVC “TS990” will be shown in Dayton Hamvention in May 2012. Earlier Kenwood JVC announced (August 27th 2011) at the JARL Ham Fair in Tokyo Japan a successor to the TS-950SDX. This new model is tentatively scheduled to be released in the later half of 2012.
Estimate price is in the range from 5000 to 6000 USD. The new transceiver will be roughly the same size as the “TS950SDX”. Transmitter power output is 200 watts. All HF + 50 MHz Bands.
I will try to post early photos from Dayton.
P.S.By the way. It’s not for sure that this transceiver will be called as “TS990” …
