Can anyone supply me with a Diagram (or Description) of the required
My main two concerns are:
1) It appears that the ACC2 Pin-6 must be connected to +12VDC in order
to activate the Transverter Jack.

b) Does the +12 on this Pin have to be SWITCHED for any other
reason than to activate the Transverter jack?
2) Is the TRANSVERTER Jack BIDIRECTIONAL - meaning is it used for BOTH

3) Or does the TRANSVERTER Jack feed the Input of the Transverter, and
the Transverter feed receive RF back to the IC-781 / 765’s Primary
