PRO-2022 / PRO-2032


The Realistic PRO-2022 and PRO-2032 are almost identical. There is ample space to modify it with a discriminator output. The FM detector is an MC3361. The baseband audio can be found on pin 9 and TP5.

Location of pin 9
Connection to the IC
Pin 9 and TP5 contain the unfiltered audio
The connection to TP5: resistor and capacitor
Follow the next steps to make the discriminator output:
  • Connect a 10 k resistor to TP5
  • Connect a 2.2 nF capacitor from the resistor's other lead to ground, e.g. to the metal case of the IF coil
  • Connect a short strand of wire to the junction of the resistor and capacitor
  • Mount a 3.5 mm chassis socket in the back of the scanner. Connect the wire with the inner contact. Since the back plane is grounded, there's no need to connect the socket's ground lug.
