Wow.. Im sooo inspired... Perhaps I should add dial-pulse signalling to the app_rpt stuff.

Can you imagine how interesting it would be on a mobile station in a fringe coverage area??

Be nice! One remote still has a tall green can in it (Automatic Electric) DIAL 4 for UHF please.......

Just a suggestion in general:

We are ham radio operators. By definition, we have, at least, a certain basic knowledge of
electronics (as is required to pass our test).

If two devices are somehow electrically incompatible with each other, use your knowledge of

electronics to build a simple circuit to interface them together. Converting from one set of
"levels" to another is REALLY not that difficult.

That's why we are what we are, and do what we do.

P.S. Or, you can use pin 8  *LIKE EVERY ONE ELSE DOES*!!
