    Yup. And the reason for this is the relays in the amp are always going to be hot switched when using an R.f. sniffer like CB amps.

    Ham VHF amps eat relays too because they hot switch.

    I believe ur info to be correct according to the manual. Set menu no 28 to 2 or 3 to activate the relay. Do not use the dc output pin7 to move the relay as it only supplies 10ma and most amp relays draw 200ma i think. I have not done this so i can't say from experience.
