I don’t recall they have any remote input. They “are supposed” to sense the input level if it is under a nominal 20 watts and do the switching automatically. I have the 1500 w model and it went back to MFJ for repair. IMHO it is not a very good unit. I call it the gambler, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t!
One thing I will tell you, hang a 5k carbon resistor from the antenna output to ground to discharge static from your antenna. A static discharge is the main reason my unit is back to the factory for repairs. The static from the antenna when through the unit and into my IC7000 and damaged the front end also.
A 5 K carbon resistor or a large coil to ground is a common discharge for broadcast stations that use a series capacitor to the antenna.
