Has anyone experience of using the Midi loop with Flex Radio?
Can anyone help? Any comments would be much be appreciated.

I just joined an have the model 2 on the way. For 10 years I have been using the model 1. I found that I could get a signal off the antenna relay inside the controller. I'm hoping I can get the same signal from same point in new model 2. I also will add a relay on same control lead to mute the audio on the Flex 6700. I'm thinking of putting a DPST relay in the head phone audio lead to do this. Any ideas would be appreciated.
I agree, the relay would have to be continuously activated from just before the whole tuning process begins to just after it finishes. Also, the motor light flashes on and off, suggesting that the motor is not continuously energised. What about if it overshoots and reverses? Anyway, I don't know what sort of motor it is or how it's controlled - maybe it's a stepper motor driven by pulses; maybe it uses a variable DC voltage, maybe it's controlled by PWM. I think the only safe way to do this would be to have a fixed signal that disables TX until the antenna is tuned and static.
