How to connect MFJ-998 tuner and ALS-1306 amp to a Flex 6400 ?
I am a new FlexRadio owner and need some help getting my amplifier and external antenna tuner talking with the Flex 6400.
The hardware is:
Radio: Flex 6400
Amp: Ameritron ALS-1306
I purchased the Ameritron cable to go from the Flex USB to the Ameritron serial connection for Band Control Data. This cable is specific for this model amp to a Flex radio, part# DB-USB6000. So I think this will take care of the amp following the band selection on the Flex radio.
What I am not clear on is how to get the Flex 6400 talking to the MFJ-998 antenna tuner.
With my old radio (Icom) I am able to push the tune button on the tuner and the tuner puts the radio in low power, transmits to find a tune solution, then sets the radio back to the setting before the tune started.
I want to achieve the same functionality with the Flex 6400.
Does anyone have this configuration successfully working?
