 Thank you so much to everyone who responded to my request for help as

I have now been directed to the February 2014 issue of QST where there is
an article by AD5X which is just what I was looking for.

Gooday all

I use my Orion II with my KPA500 and usually try to manually switch bands
rather than rely on the RF sensing.

I would really like to use the band information output from the Orion II to
automatically switch bands on the KPA500.

Does anybody know of a band decoder which is compatible with both pieces of
equipment or alternatively has anyone designed something home brew to
achieve the purpose.

Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.
