I use an XV144 and a PRO II (which most likely has the same keying outputs, 

I use a Down East Microwave sequencer because I also use a tube amplifier 
and a mast mounted preamp.

I modified the XV144 so that the final amplifier is biased off until the 
sequencer enables it as the last step in the transmit sequence.  I changed 
the XV144 amplifier keying output jack to a transmit enable input.  The 756 
keys the sequencer (and I think it keys the transverter transmit/receive at 
the same time, I'd have to check).

It works great, but it might be more complex than what you need.
