[kpa500] keying KPA500 with K3 attached

eric norris
I want to try keying my KPA500 with a KX3.  The KPA500 is connected to my K3 via the serial-like cable.  THE QUESTION:  Can I just turn the K3 off and use the RCA KEY line on the KPA500 to the KX3, or do I need to disconnected the K3  control line completely?

Thanks and 73,

Eric WD6DBM

You may keep them both connected. That's what I do.
