>>Paul, Jim, and all,
>>I made up a cable with a diode in series to connect the 87A "relay" jack
>>to a "Y" cable to plug into the "TX OUT" and "TX EN" jacks on the Omni 6
>>polarity of the diode has the cathode (band end) connected to the Y.
>>This works very FB on BOTH CW QSK and SSB...glad to report. It IS nice not
>>having ANY relay chadder even on SSB!
>>I DO NOT suggest doing this with any other amplifier unless you know that
>>keying line polarity of the amplifier is correct AND that the amp keying
>>circuit is of very small current. Actually I would not do it with any
>>that uses relays.
>>I only suggest this with a Alpha 87A or 89.
