I have added a IF PanAdapter output on my FTDX-1200. The IF frequency of the FTDX-1200 is 40.455 Mhz.

To tap the IF signal, I implemented a G4HUP PAT board (Panoramic Adaptor Tap Board) : the board is to buy at  . The board type is the model  PAT50M see the list here :  It is better and safer to use a PAT board, direct tapping the IF offer no protection.

I ordered the PAT board here :

First locate the IF Tap point on the FTDX-1200 :
