Can someone provide information to properly hookup the Heathkit SB 200 linear to a Kenwood TS 2000?

You'll need to modify the amplifier, or build or buy an external keying interface.  The SB200 has a high voltage keying line which must be grounded on transmit, and the TS2000 keying circuit cannot handle the high voltage.

The Ameritron ARB-702K will do this job for you, if you don't want to make modifications or build your own keying interface. It comes with very complete instructions for connection.

Hi: Harbach has a keying line mod kit for the SB200. It's easy to install, and works FB.

Or build the interface box yourself from plans on the ARRL TIS website.
