Although I've tried many different rigs, I keep going back to my favorite: a Kenwood TS-930. Despite not having modern bells & whistles like DSP, it's easy to listen to and can really pull signals out of the QRM.

I also have an Icom IC-2KL amp which I also like very much. QRO at the press of a button!

Is there any way to successfully interface these two units? I don't care about auto bandswitching, but I have two concerns: (1)ALC voltages seem to be different for the two rigs, and (2) I've heard the TS-930 can put out "spikes" which will damage the 2KL. I'm not certain if they're referring to transmitter transients or relay spikes.

So here are my questions: Can I adjust the 2KL to an appropriate ALC setting? (I can't "throttle back" the TS-930 because it doesn't have a RF output adjustment.) Could I use a Harbach keying relay between the two as a form of protection? Or perhaps a Heil footswitch instead?
