- This was unexpected, but in retrospect perfectly logical. Not
sure it's desirable...
I have an old IC-27H mobile that I've slightly modified for APRS - bringing out
full audio and switched B+ on the 8-pin mic connector. That
all works great; I tested with an OT for a while.
Tonight I finished up a powerpole box to connect the PS and battery and
various bits and bobs. I plugged in the radio first, that worked fine.
I plugged the T2 into the radio and it powered right up. Not exactly
what I intended, but OK. (I have the internal jumper set to measure
the supply voltage pin, not the radio voltage pin.)
I then hooked up the supply to the T2. Fine. I wanted to do a little
testing, so I turned off the radio ... but it didn't turn off. Huh?
Oh. The radio is now being powered *through* the T2. Not really the
right thing when the radio is set at 45W out!
I guess it doesn't really matter to me, I can leave the T2 powered
from the radio. But maybe there should be a jumper to disconnect this :-)
