Re: Astro tac receiver COR

Well,thanks for all input,here is what I did to enable this:
J11. on back of the receiver,RJ 45:

PIN 5 TO GROUND,I SECURED TO SCREW ON ASTRO TAC RECEIVER

PIN 6 THEN HAS A LOW WHEN THE RADIO RECEIVES.

Then you can key up whatever radio you like,in my case a CM 200D.Works well,no programming at all.
