SDR interface for FTDX1200

Follow the steps below to install the IFace card in the YAESU FTDX-1200. Installation is really very easy.

As always we start from the block diagram and try to find information on where to get the first intermediate frequency signal. We use the first because it is not filtered, i.e. the band is still wide. The following images make it very clear where this point is located. The PTT may not be necessary, the TX and RX circuits are well separated. The power supply can be taken from a point very close to the relais labeled RL1007.

At this point all that remains is to identify the points on the PCB where to take the signals: refer to the following images.

With the video below you can also view the instructions and listen to the explanations on how to install the IFace

If you are convinced of the goodness of the proposal buy an IFace using the button below.

Morse Stick Keyer

Morse Stick is a simple and easy to use Morse code electronic keyer thought to be light, small and inexpensive.

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).

Technical data:

  • size – 100 x 19 x 2 mm;
  • weight – 6 grs + cable;
  • cable – 60 cm 3 wire;
  • connector – 3,5 mm stereo jack.

Please watch these demo videos.
