8Running the TS-590S with the SDR-IQ4-Oct-2010RF SpaceYouTube video
9USB-to-Serial Adapters24-Jun-2014Stephen H. Smith, WA8LMFThe definitive words on what adapter to choose (and what not to choose)
10TS-590SG Whitepaper: Software Incompatibilities with the TS-590S1.02-Nov-2014Ian Wade, G3NRWA detailed listing of the differences between the CAT command sets in the TS-590SG and TS-590S
11Build590 CAT Library1.04-Dec-2014Ian Wade, G3NRWCAT library for third-party developers, to help make apps “bilingual” – that is, for use with the TS-590SG and the TS-590S. The zip file contains the User Guide, plus the library code in BASIC as a plain-text file for easy editing
12Clean digital signals tutorial8-May-2014Nige Coleman, G7CNFDetails of how to set up the Windows Volume Mixer gain levels correctly and how to make sure the signal sampling rates are correct. Although prepared for an SDR transceiver, the principles in this tutorial apply equally to the TS-590. A must-view for everyone transmitting digital signals
13Adding a peak-reading adapter to a Bird 43 Wattmeter14-Dec-2015Alan E Wolke, W2AEWThis video shows how easy it is to add a peak-reading adapter to a Bird 43 wattmeter, using the PR-90 from LNA Technology
14Protective Multiple Earthing and the Radio Amateur07 Issue 2Radio Society of Great BritainAn easy-to-read guide to modern earthing (grounding) in the shack. WARNING: This leaflet applies to the United Kingdom, and describes grounding requirements that conform to UK standards. Grounding arrangements in other countries may be different. Talk to a local certified electrician if you are unsure
