Perhaps you could share the comments with all of us Steve !??

It IS a pain hearing the clanks of the relay all the time and I end up
by using an external relay to c/o my TL922 with a foot switch that also
switches the FT1000D. I keep the S1002 deactivated to enable (quiet)
QSK and then take "out" the BK-IN switch to enable CW with the amp when
condx demand it !
Presumably Pin2 on the data out is a "5v hi" on tx  and "lo 0v" on Rx.
So do you have a full QSK amp ?? There are mods to the TL922 that make
it full QSK but I have not considered the effort and vacumn relay
involved really worth it over semi QSK using VOX style CW opertaion.
