Icom IC-R100: BFO for CW and SSB

This is a 20yr old receiver 0.1-1856 MHz AM/FM/WFM and I would try to add a BFO for receive CW/SSB.

Some years ago it was possible to find an option bfo board, but now it’s impossible.

Now I want try to adapt this TEN-TEC BFO

Some info in italian language can be found here: CQ ELETTRONICA 05/1993

Thanks to IV3CIS Giorgio for sending me the article.

  1. Results? I have IC r100 and need modification for cw ssb too.

    • Hi Zdravko,
      I’ve built the Tentec kit in external box then injected the 455KHz carrier to the AM detector.
      Result is quite good but without appropriate filter, listening a crowded band can be a difficult task.
      73s
