Fast forward to today, I sold the Icom-9100 to finance my flex-6300 trade up to a flex-6500. I still have the antennas and the preamps. I have also added two transverters, both Elecraft, one VX432 and a VX144 and have them built, aligned and tested. So now I’m trying to figure out how to go about getting power to the preamps and removing power when transmitting and utilizing my 6500 for SAT work.
I have two options I think...
1) power the amps through the coax again.
2) power them via external connector.
I’m leaning the external connector but do not know how to handle the power off when transmitting, I’m assuming a sequencer, but what one? How do they work? What connections to the radio do I need? Does the sequencer provide power to the preamps?
Looking for some guidance, instruction, information on the subject and if anyone has done this how did you handle the situation?
