    I made this video tutorial on adding IF output for a panadapter on the Icom IC-7100 or any other transceiver. It is in Portuguese language, but I just added English subtitles. I hope you enjoy. 73 from PY2JF

    Took less than 15 minutes to find out where to connect on the 7200.

    I needed to yank the covers on the 7200 anyway as I had some heating (ALC) issues when running hours of RTTY recently.

    I'll try to add an SMA bulkhead connector and probably some additional cooling holes and see how this goes.

    I don't want bidirectional though...just the display of the IF.

    To "see" any significant bandwidth, the pick-off point needs to be ahead of any selectivity. Any filter ahead of the pick-off point will limit the bandwidth. Narrow roofing filters are common nowadays.

    The IF OUT on my olde Kenwood TS850 supplies signal that is picked-off between the LC bandpass filter on the frontend, and the roofing filter. That allows me to sweep as wide as I want. As well, on my even older rigs, I tapped ahead of the IF filter (single conversion rcvr).
