I have an SB-200 and was wondering if it is better to let it idle when I am 
tuning around or leave it off and turn it on only when I need it.  I built a 
Standby Switch into the control cable from the radio to the amp so I can use 
the radio without keying the amp. I used an Opto-isolator from Ham Gadgets and 
only provide power to the circuit when I want to use the amp. It has worked 
well but I wonder which scenario is better for the amp.
