[CQ-Contest] Adding a separate receiver

Is there a fairly easy way to interface a receiver
like the Kenwood R559D to a transceiver (in this case
a TS2000) for true dual receive?

I want to eventually get a HF rig that does dual
in-band receive for DX pileups, but won't have the
funds for a year or so.  I used to have a set of
Kenwood Twins and loved the receiver and got to
thinking that there might be a way to interface the
receiver with a transceiver.  I know the transmitter
would mute the receiver, and the receiver would pick
up the antenna connection from the transmitter, so is
there a good way to interface such a receiver with a
transceiver so you can listen on both the receiver and
the transceiver at the same time?
