It seems as though my thread was closed to replies......so here is my additional reply.

 I think maybe my question wasn't stated correctly. I should have asked; Is there a way to run  KEY's (Brown Bros iambic)...or straight KEY (not a keyer), from the 6300's rear panel?

  An iambic requires 3 connections (wires) and the straight key needs only 2.

  Sorry for the confusion.

Straight key yes, Keyer output yes.  Iambic paddles NO ( front only )

Any ol' el-cheapo keyer will solve the problem for the iambic key in the back.

Scott,

Thanks for the advise but that's just what I don't want to do....more 'stuff' hanging off the rig. However, I might consider relocating the 'Key' receptacle to the back panel, but haven't opened 'er up yet to look around and suspect if I do relocate, then ferrites will be in order. Obviously, if I elect to relocate, I will not leave a gaping hole in the front panel of my nice '6300.

Thanks again and 73,
Tom

Tom,

Be sure that any modifications that you may make do not invalidate the warranty. If it were me, I would check with Flex first.
