I see. You want to replace the "full potential" with a "ASA" potential, where the WS-spheres are
equal to the unit cell volume (and overlap !)

At least schematically such code is certainly in WIEN2k, but of course not directly usable.

E.g. in SRC_lapw0/lapw0.F   the coulomb potential in the interstital (written as Fourier series)
is expanded into "Besselfunctions" for R=RMT  (and you want to have it for R-values, which are
gt. RMT). The relevant code lines are:

         DO J=2,NKK

           CALL SPHBES(lmax2+1,ARG,BES)

           DO LM1=1,LLMM
             L=IABS( LM(1,LM1,JATOM) )
             IF (LMMULT1.NE.1) THEN
               IF ((L.EQ.IABS(LMMULT(1,LMMULT1-1,JATOM))).AND. &
                 (M.EQ.LMMULT(2,LMMULT1-1,JATOM))) THEN
             CVOUT(LM1)=CVOUT(LM1) + POTK(J)*BES(L)*YKA(LMMULT1)

This loops over all K of the fourier series, and in the second line
you would put "your" R (instead of RMT).
Then you calculate the besselfunctions and the spherical harmonics.

Maybe you need only LM1=Ll,m=0,0  spherical part ?

remember: exp(iKr)= 4 pi SUM_l (imag**l bes(K.r) * Y_LM(r) * conjg(Y_LM(K)) )
