    Do you have a cable between one of the ports
    TX1, 2, or 3 going to the PTT on the transverter?
    If you are running version 3, go to the TX
    band settings and activate the TX port for
    the band you are using. Probably 28 MHz.
    Version 2 I think uses the radio setup screen
    under the tab Transmit.
    That should key the transverter. Then just
    make sure you are using the appropiate drive
    power and I would think you're good to go.
    I realize this is a generic answer to your
    question, but the TX ports on the back are for
    keying transverters, amplifiers, and other

    Thurman....  I had the same question when I first got my Q5.  Corey at Q5 helped me along...……

    Your antenna connects directly to the Transverter's ANT/RX Connector (Type-N Female). The coax to your antenna should have a Type-N Male installed. If not, an adapter can be used.

    The Transverter's PTT connects to your FLEX's TX1, TX2, or TX3. These are Female RCA Connectors. (Don't forget to enable whichever port you use)

    The Transverter's IF connects to your FLEX's XVTR-A. These are Female BNC Connectors.

    And yes, you can connect the Transverter's REF jack to the 10MHz output on the FLEX if you wish.

    Hope this helps.
