View Full Version : Sony ICF 2001 ?
Is this radio able to be converted ?
Yes it is. I did it some time ago, The radio do not like strong signal and you may need to reduse the signal by changing the gain to get max SNR.
Sorry, I didn't notice the missing 'D' :-)
Btw I am talking about the 2001 here not the newer 2001D with airband
Can the board fit insidfe the Sony ? Any mods needed to inputs etc ?
Does it affect nornal reception in any way ?
Where is the best place to buy the board ?
The problem with ICF-2001 radio is the narrow bandwidth. DRM needs at least 10 kHz band. I think that ICF-2001 has only 6 kHz wide ceramic 10.7 MHz second IF filter. If you change the IF filter (CF2) to a 10 - 15 kHz wide filter then you can use the radio for DRM reception.
ICF 2001D/2010 is very easy to modify for DRM as it has 455 kHz second IF with two ceramic 12 kHz/ 6kHz wide filters.
It was the 2001D that I modified. Did it only for as a test and did not add any if filter. Not sure I would recomend it as main DRM rec.
