I no longer have my TS-440 (was zapped by lightning), but it looks like
you could easily tap into the 8.83 MHz IF at J11 on the RF board. J11
is ahead of the filters, and should provide a reasonably wide frequency
range for a panadaptor. In addition, the signal is buffered with a
Darlington pair of transistors to provide a low impedance output.
The Softrock would require a different crystal. Perhaps Tony has some
just for this IF.
