Just got my new used XV144. Planning to use it with my TS850. Looking
over the schematic it appears K8 and K9 are open when power is off and
closed anytime power is on.
It seems it should be possible to use one of the unused contacts on one of
those relays to route RF from the TS850 to the HF antenna. There's already
an extra empty BNC-size hole in the back panel which looks original.
My question is whether I can put 100W of HF through the contacts on K8 or K9
more than once without welding them together?
