To install the IFace card inside the Kenwood TS-440s follow the steps below.
The TS-440s, like other radios, has a fairly complex configuration and uses different intermediate frequencies. We are interested in having a “wide band” signal, so it will have to be picked up before the main bandpass filter. The sequence of operations to be performed to obtain a bandwidth sufficient to realize a panoramic receiver around the chosen IF frequency (45.05 MHz) is shown below. The path of the TX and RX signals is partly separate, so the PTT command to disable the IFace during transmission may not be necessary, but if you use it the SDR receiver will be more isolated when transmitting. The following images show the point where the IF signal will be taken and the power supply.
Now we need to locate the points where to connect the electric cables to the IFace. The following images illustrate where to get the various signals on the RF UNIT.
You can buy an IFace using the buttons below.
ATTENTION: Though installing the IFace is not difficult, you do this at your own risk. TSP S.r.l. is not responsible for any damage, unwanted side-effects or whatever.
