Power Genius coming-installation question

II plan to use my PG with both a Flex 6700 and ICOM 7610. I understand the needed installation hookups. My question is how the PG senses which transceiver is functioning. Is it the PTT or Ethernet data or sensing RF at Transceiver 1 or 2 SO239s?

    Wayne - I'm not sure (I'm still waiting on my PG-XL) but check on page 16 of the PG-XL manual and you'll see a Configuration window.  I'm guessing that's where you determine how a non-Flex rig is configured.

    By the way, when did you place your PG-XL order?

    May 31, 2017.  My concern about installation is how the PG senses which transceiver (with it's frequency data) is "in use".  I suspect it will be whichever one presents RF to the PG and not the PTT.  This is how the Expert Linear works but I am not sure it's how the PG works.

    The PGXL requires either an analog PTT signal (to the appropriate RCA jack on the back of the unit) or PTT over TCP/IP to enter transmit mode.  Band/filter selection can come from RF in,  RS232 (various protocols), BCD pin and TCP/IP.   But to transmit, you need to supply a PTT signal.
