    HL2.5KFX & HC-1.5KAT Interface

    I connected an HC-1.5KAT to my 2.5KFX. On initial start up the tuner defaulted to 1.8 as expected. I then tried to get the tuner to follow the transceiver to 14MHz with no luck. The next time I did a start up, the tuner showed 14MHz which is apparently what I should expect. Beyond that I have had no luck getting the amp to track the transceiiver band changes. I have checked and double checked the cable connections. Any thoughts on what I might be doing wroing or overlooking? Many thanks. 73, Tommy WE7K

    What model transceiver are you using?
    If it's an Icom you need to Have the Civ Transceive setting in the menu to ON.
    Does the amp follow the radio band changes?

    A question Rob. I don't have the cable for the amp to tunner connection. I know it's a 7 pin cable. I see in the tuner specs that 2, 4, and 7 are needed to enable the tuner/amp combo. I also see that the 1.5Kfx has all 7 positions wired on the tuner interface. I take it a straight through fully wired 7 pin cable will do the trick. Correct?
