The result you can get is well shown in the following video.


The TS-2000, as well as other radios, has a fairly complex configuration and uses different intermediate frequencies depending on the band on the which one is operating. In any case, the one described here is the sequence of operations to be done to obtain sufficient bandwidth to make a panoramic receiver around the selected IF frequency. For this reason we opt for the first average frequency and before the roofing filter (or intermediate frequency filter). The image below shows the point where the IF signal will be taken for reception in the HF / 50 MHz band.

  • The point where the IF signal can be picked up can be more precisely identified by means of the wiring diagram as shown in the following pictures. We can use the CN6 connector (pay attention to the polarity). The electronic card of interest is the one called TX-RX1 and it is on the bottom side of the radio.

  • Now we have to look for where to get the power supply. At the bottom of the TX-RX1 diagram on the left is the “PANEL” connector. Nearby is the resistance R398: at the ends of this it is possible to take the voltage with which to feed the IFace. These components are physically close to the CN6 connector from which the IF signal is taken.

  • PTT: TS-2000 is not required because the reception circuit is muted (MUTE) during transmission.

  • In the pictures that follow you can see how close are the points where to take the IF signal and the power supply: the installation is really simple.
