TS-130S/V with SDR panadapter

Our buffer interface named IFace can be used to add an SDR panadapter to the Kenwood TS-130S/V.

The operations to be carried out are very simple, it is sufficient to obtain from its wiring diagram the information on the points where the IF signal has to be taken. This radio uses several mixers, we are interested in the first of the reception chain as it gives us a broadband signal. The IF frequency is 8.830 MHz. The following image shows the block diagram of the radio and where to get the IF signal.

The following image shows the portions of the schematic diagram of the TX-RX UNIT where we can see the exact points where to sample the IF signal and the power supply.

We now proceed to identify the exact points on the printed circuit board where to take the IF signal to be sent to the IFace. The following images show the sampling point for the IF signal and for the power supply for the buffer interface.

The use of PTT signal is not required, RX and TX signals are separated.

In order to purchase an IFace use 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.

Da zero ad Arduino®

Molti di quelli che hanno acquistato il nostro videocorso Electronic Maker Hiker hanno chiesto informazioni in merito ad Arduino®, in particolare se potevamo fornire loro le basi per iniziare ad utilizzarlo.
E’ un grande sforzo, ma cerchiamo di accontentare tutti, e in YouTube potete trovare tutta una serie di video lezioni (gratuite e in continuo aumento) dedicate a chi deve iniziare da zero (ma anche per chi ha iniziato da solo e, sicuramente, lo ha fatto commettendo degli errori).

Ma stiamo facendo di più!
E’ in preparazione un videocorso per utenti che sanno già fare qualcosa con Arduino® ma vogliono migliorare e passare alla comunicazione su rete TCP/IP così da poter realizzare dispositivi IoT basati su Arduino (e non solo, vedrete).

Ne vuoi sapere di più? Hai delle richieste particolari? Compila il form che trovi qui (o fai click sull’immagine di seguito) e ti terremo aggiornato.

Nel frattempo ti riproponiamo un altro interessante articole sulla programmazione di questi dispositivi: Arduino e la funzione delay.

Last but not least, non dimenticare di iscriverti al canale YouTube (click qui) e di attivare le notifiche (click sulla campanella).

Buona lettura e ti aspettiamo a lezione 😉.

SDR interface for the IC-706MKIIG

These are the instructions to install the IFace interface inside of the Icom IC-706MKIIG. The installation is very easy.

The IC-706MKIIG, like other radios, has a fairly complex configuration and uses two different intermediate frequencies. We are interested in the first, the “wideband” one, the one before the main bandpass filter (the roofing filter so to speak). The sequence of operations to be performed in order to obtain a sufficient bandwidth to realize a panoramic receiver around the chosen IF frequency is shown below. The intermediate frequency filter is also used in transmission, so it will be preferable to use the PTT command to disable the IFace during transmission. The following images show the point where the IF signal will be taken.

Let’s start by analyzing the wiring diagram. We have to find the first mixer, the PTT and where to take the power supply. From the following images everything will appear clear.

PTT and power supply can be easily taken from the connector J10. The interesting signal are labeled as T8 and 13.8 respectively.

At this point we have to locate the points where we connect the electric cables to the IFace. The following images show where to take the various signals.

If you like the idea and the goodness of the proposal buy an IFace using the button below.
