SDR interface for the IC-7600

These are the instructions to install the IFace interface inside of the Icom IC-7600. The installation is very easy.

The IC-7600, as well as other radios, has a fairly complex configuration and uses two different intermediate frequencies. We are interested in the first, the “wide band” one, the first one of the main band pass filter (the roofing filter so to speak). Below is the sequence of operations to be performed in order to obtain a sufficient bandwidth to make a panoramic receiver around the chosen IF frequency. Going over you can find some images that illustrate how to install the interface for SDR. The following image shows 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.

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.

This last image shows the inside of the RTX and where the IFace interface is to be placed.

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.

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.

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