69667Ensemble RX II with 455kHz IF added
- Nov 1, 2012I have ordered my Ensemble RX II kit and excited to get this unit to mostly
learn about SDR and use it as the first phase of my longer goal. I also ordered
the additional IF Center Frequency 464 kHz for 455 kHz IF frequency chip with
for the second phase of this project / experiment.
I ultimately would like to tap into the 455 kHz IF of my ICOM 7200 to build a
general purpose PAN adapter. I know there are a lot of Kenwoods that do this
type of function, but I cannot seem to obtain collateral information on how this
is done on an ICOM. I do have the service manual for the 7200 and can find the
location of the circuit on the board, but I have to admit I am little spooked
with doing this myself based on my lack of experience. I have the soldering
skills and have built several other projects in the past, but not any SMD.
Any information is appreciated.
