ICOM PCR2500 IF Tap Mod

Notes from Lindsay Blanton

Word of warning - the tap point is extremely small, and not for the faint of heart. I actually went out and purchased a professional Weller Soldering iron and special soldering tip just for this task. Using the least amount of heat possible, I glued a pre-tinned small piece of wire next to the tap point, and then dragged some solder from the VERY small surface mount point to the wire. I then ran this 1 1/2 inch short length of wire up through the hole next to the center screw, and soldered some shielded cable to that for the run to the BNC connector.
