OK. I got my "2300" used and it's the digital version, which I guess
abandons the pot method. Thanks for the info! 73, Tyler

Hi Tyler! My Orion 2300 from before K6MYC took it over has a pot
driving a meter through some op amps for its direction indication.
The reed switches are on the 2800 with the counter-style read-out.
Perhaps there are 2300's with a digital direction indicator that was
a transition model??
