    Thanks, everyone!  I've got the RigRunner / grounded remote working and have bookmarked the other solutions for future use.

    I have a 3Gstore Remote Power IP Switch I got from Amazon.  Works great.  My issue is the wiring from the IP remote switch.  Can someone show me a photo of what I need to build for the RCA connection?  I have an old radio shack 3 amp 12 volt power supply running from the IP AC Power switch but am unsure of the wiring to the RCA plug the 12 volt source.

    I used a two dollar 12 VDC (1 amp rating) SPST reed relay from Jameco and wired it inline with a surplus audio cable.   But, I suggest you save yourself the trouble of wiring up a DC relay and get one of these 120 VAC power relays from DLI; plug it into your 3Gstore remote power switch and connect the Flex REMOTE ON to it with any old RCA audio cable from your junk drawer.

    The DLI relay gives you a choice of normally-on (closed) or normally-off operation (open).

    Thank you.  I looked at this but was unsure.  I will order one pronto.  I only want to operate "remote" from the bedroom upstairs but this will save me trip to the basement.

    While we will not take orders until the amp has passed final FCC/CE you can send an email to sales at FlexRadio dot com saying you want to be on the mailing list to receive updates.

    This was too easy.  Worked right away with Digital Loggers device and 3Gstore AC switch.

    How can these things be so inexpensive?   A few years ago I would have to mortgage the house.
