[TenTec] Corsair II VFO level?

It seems to me that a remote 263-G style DDS along with a DDS replacement 
for the main VFO could provide the DUAL RX capability for the 
CORSAIR/CORSAIR-II. I would like to have the RA-RB, TA-TB, RAB, Reverse and 
A-B balance controls on the remote DDS.

73 es DX,

You'd be amazed how much nicer the Corsair feels with the original
tuning knob driving an encoder rather than the PTO. I even epoxied some
steel nuts to the inside of the knob to give it extra weight! I really
can "spin the dial" now.

I find the "split" function really intuitive, the way Joe has arranged
the software. The only thing it doesn't offer which I have on the
external VFO is the "dual listen" function.
