In looking at the N4YG DDS VFO and the associated links, a question came to
mind: the PTO/VFO signal loops through the back panel VFO IN/OUT, and
appropriate DC power should be available on the accompanying Molex connector.
Unless I'm missing something, might it be possible (and about as easy) just
to mount the DDS VFO in an external enclosure and use it as a 263(G) remote
VFO "clone" instead of installing it internally?
