If you want to operate using your Orion and wish to use your 253 on 60 
Meters, you need a
cable different from the 236. It does not have the wire required to 
energize the memory that
covers 60 Meters.  I Had Riley's Accessories 
(http://rileysaccessories.tripod.com/) modify their standard 236 with 
the extra wire required to implement 60 meters. Tell him you want one 
like he built for me.

I obtained my 311 from Ten Tec direct.  They still had them several 
years ago when I got mine.
Just ask sales and get the Orion-311 cable as well. Then the modified 
236 connects from it
to the 253.
