    I was trying to research a mod to tap into the IC-7200 1st IF but have found little data. The only thing I found was this site that mentions applying a interface card:
    https://www.tspelettronica.com/en/2021/02/06/panadapter-sdr-per-ic-7200/

    Has anyone successfully achieved a tap? I use the radio for when I am out and about with HDSDR and would love to employ a panadapter. I was thinking that a similar 5pf inline tap, similar to the IC-7100, may work.

    I really should have clicked on the link first!

    I looked at the service manual and that is exactly where I was going to suggest to tap. I would however, avoid tapping just through a capacitor, as this may load the IF signal down, resulting in reduced sensitivity. Much better to use one of the buffer boards.
