GPS Lock Your Icom IC-9700 with the Leo Bodnar Injection Board! Simple Installation & Setup!

12 August, 2020 - Reading time: 2 minutes

Introducting the Leo Bodnar IC-9700 GPS Injection Board. This board is installed into your Icom IC-9700 and solves the issue of drift and frequency stability! Best of all NO soldering is required!

From the Leo Bodnar website - https://www.leobodnar.com/shop/

"This module allows locking the ICOM IC-9700 radio transceiver internal frequency reference, to an external 49.152MHz signal. If the internal reference is locked to a GPS signal, achievable ICOM stability can be better than 1Hz on all bands. Installing this module inside the ICOM IC-9700 does not require any soldering or modification to internal circuitry. This modification is completely reversible and should not affect your warranty. This module is designed to be used and has been tested with our range of GPS reference clocks signal sources."

In this video I show the installation and setup of the board in my 9700.
