Panadapter SDR for the TS-430s

To install the IFace card inside the Kenwood TS-430s follow the steps below.

The TS-430s, 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 (48.055 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. 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.

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

Panadapter SDR for the IC-735

To install the IFace card inside the ICOM IC-735 follow the steps below.

The IC-735, 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 band pass filter. The sequence of operations to be performed to obtain a bandwidth sufficient to realize a panoramic receiver around the chosen IF frequency (70.451 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. 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 MAIN UNIT.

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

Morse Stick Keyer 2: how to use it!

A new video from TSP S.r.l. shows how to use the “Morse Stick Keyer 2”, the most light and small paddle for telegraphy of the world. The demostration is made using a well know YAESU FT-817. This paddle works very well with other radio too, for example with: FT450D, IC7000, IC7300, TS-480, KX3 and many more.

You can find all the information at the product page. Here below you can find the demo video (please activate the subtitles). Enjoy.

For more information please use the following form.

CW Stick Paddle 2

CW Stick Paddle 2 is a simple and easy to use Morse code keyer thought to be light, small and inexpensive. With respect the previous version, this adds the squeeze mode feature.

It is ideal for portable and QRP operations, in car installations, but also for travelling everywhere you want with your favourite radio.

It doesn’t have mechanical parts, it is totally electronic. And it doesn’t need any battery to work! Use simply your fingers to start operating Morse code with your favourite radio.

It works with all the modern transceivers replacing a normal mechanical 3 wires Morse keyer.

It is available in two versions, the “standard” and the “Black & Gold Limited Edition”, elegant and beautiful !!!

It can be used with FT-450D, FT-817, FT-857, FT-897, IC-706, IC-7000, IC-7300, TS-480, Elecraft KX3, Mountain Topper Radio MTR3B and similar (low voltage (3 – 5 V) on keyer connector).
