Bill, That wasn't the point.  You can use a Y with any radio and any two sources.  The point here was that you can't use an external keyet (CT in this case) and the internal keyer at the same time on the MP without manipulating menus.  You can on the Icom radios, as they provide a separate key line input and a keyer input.
