I am fairly certain that the OMNI-C series shipped with a Molex plug 
jumpered on the accessory socket to enable the internal VFO. I had the C 
Digital model with External VFO.  The radio will NOT work without the jumper 
on the accessory socket and the VFO IN/OUT jumper OR the External VFO 
plugged into the accessory socket and the VFO IN/OUT jacks.

The External VFO when installed switches BOTH PTOs including RCV A/B, TX 
A/B, and RCV A & B (dual receive).

I wouldn't expect the Accessory connector to need a jumper.

>From the look of the schematics, the remote VFO system - unlike the
Corsair - leaves both PTOs running continuously; they simply switch the
PTO RF output.
