The PIN diode discussion must be referring to the Ulrich Rohde mods.
I have done it on my ICOM 765 with negligible results, but then for
2nd order intermod to be a problem, I believe (from what I remember)
the offending signal must be fairly strong.  In other words, this was
a mod that multi-op contesters would be interested in, or folks like
me who have ham neighbors that give them fits!  HI!  About the time I
got my mod done, the neighbor moved.  Guess I outlasted (or outblasted?)
him.  He was running a TS-430, and, WOW, did it have phase noise on the
transmitted CW signal!  Of course, no mod in my RX would help that.
