If you want to operate using your Orion and wish to use your 253 on 60
Meters, you need a
cable different from the 236. It does not have the wire required to
energize the memory that
covers 60 Meters. I Had Riley's Accessories
(http://rileysaccessories.tripod.com/) modify their standard 236 with
the extra wire required to implement 60 meters. Tell him you want one
like he built for me.
I obtained my 311 from Ten Tec direct. They still had them several
years ago when I got mine.
Just ask sales and get the Orion-311 cable as well. Then the modified
236 connects from it
to the 253.
