Planning the addition of the PowerGenius XL in the near future. I will want to operate my K2 with it. It does not have a PTT line (without doing a mod), but just has the key line. Will this play well with the XL?

Thanks and 73

@Andy KU7T - Since the product (PowerGeniusXL) hasn't launched nor have final documents been isued, you can ask Ranko 4o3a first hand via the forum and/or support on his main website Http://www.4o3a.com  for exact details on his amp.

But your real issue is the base K2 lacks a PA-Keying output.  I think the KPA-100 module for K2/100 may have added one, otherwise you need to put in mod like Tom N0SS's (was linked form Elecraft's webpages). http://www.elecraft.com/Apps/Amp_keying_ckt.htm

The "Key" on the K2 is for your code key input.
