Looks like an easy mod and it would leave you with the most awesome freeband CB!
DSTAR on CB? ;o)

If anyone is taking their unit apart please post a pic of the resistor bank before making any mods... i have the EU and JA versions... need the USA version to see its defaults.

May be interesting for somebody. Because I'm absolutely not satisfied with 705's recording quality, and the chance that Icom will add IF recording is very low, I decided to make my own one based on a Raspberry Pi. 12KHz bandwidth can be recorded, and frequency will automatically get from a transceiver. It's almost ready :)

I will publish it as open-source when done. For Raspberry Pi without LCD, control can be done via the smartphone.

This blind audio test was an interesting read for anyone wondering about the audio quality.
