Just got this SEA tuner on ebay. Now to hook it up...

Sea Antenna Autotuner HF SSB Communications Wireless | eBay

This tuner didnt come with manual. I suppose the DC connections are pretty obvious on the blue terminal strip in the small board, but will it work with just the 13.8vdc and RF from the radio, or do I need to also connect PTT? And what about digital modes? With this tuner can I simply key the PTT and the tuner will stay in tune while operating in digital modes?

The connections on terminal srrip J2 are labeled...
GND
RX DATA
DTN/GPS
TND
+13.6

Anyone with actual knowledge here on this particular tuner?

Anybody?

I figured out that the small boardis a gps receiver and probably only needed for GMDSS compliance. I can probably disconnect it and hook up straight to J1. Still drawing a blank on what connections are needed though. Someone who knows, please weigh in. I couldnt find the manual online.

Just won a M700PRO on ebay so it will be my HF radio.
