A clarification: the code in the reference design I linked to
is actually operating the chip in 3-wire mode. It nicely makes
use of the MCU's SPI interface hardware, but the incoming and
outgoing serial data lines are actually connected together with
a 1 kohm resistor (see the schematic in the app note).
I actually used a version of that code example in the first
version of my interface. That said, I'm back to bit-banging
with my current software.
Yesterday, one of these arrived at my house from Mouser:
It's quite a lot bigger than my present prototype, but should be
easier to work with in terms of solder points, etc. Last night
I determined that if I cut off the bottom third of the board
(where the potentiometer and switch are), I will be able to fit
the remainder inside my PL-380. (These Tecsuns are remarkable
in their packaging design -- very little wasted space and yet
very easy to dis- and re-assemble.) The PL-380's built-in USB
connector will make this a very stealth modification!

Because the Tecsun uses the 3 wire interface I feel it is best to stick
