As far as antenna connection shared between the DX100 and paragon, use a DPDT relay that both grounds the paragon receive antenna input and opens it from the DX100 antenna during receive. I have done this numerous times with other transmitter/receive pairs and it will provide plenty of protection.

Then follow Bob's suggestion to put the paragon in transmit for muting.

In celebration of my 60th anniversary in Ham Radio, I have finished the overhaul of my Heath DX-100 transmitter to 
have some fun on classic radio AM mode.  I want to use my T-T Paragon 585 transceiver as my AM Receiver in 
conjunction with my DX-100.  I have built the “traditional” outboard antenna transfer relay with an 
auxiliary spst shorting mute output for use with the DX-100.  Now I find that the Paragon has NO provision for 
muting the receiver externally.  I am concerned about damaging the front end of the receiver with the DXC-100 
output.  I doubt simply grounding the “antenna” jack on the Paragon would be adequate protection.  I 
therefore ask for this group’s knowledge and expertise as how to approach any needed modification or 
procedures required.  Thank you for your assistance.  QRZ Info is current.  Regards,  Bob K4BG
