    That amp needs a foot pedal to key amp. It has a 120v relay. Few options possible. Foot pedal with RCA jack easiest. Otherwise other option is change relay to 12vdc, then need small 12v source and could then install standard keying circuit. Another option is build a small feedthru box with relay and keying circuit, use a rca jack from back of amp and small cord to remote box. Relay inside would switch it off and on. Remote box would need a small 12v supply.

    Ok. I assume you recommend using the foot pedal. How does it work? Where does it plug into? Is it something I can easily make? Keying circuit seems like what I would want to do depending on cost.

    You think he could or needs to send you the amp to have what he wants done to it done?? If so, Matt you might want to shoot Crusher a PM. This is the person I was recommending! He is a good amp tech should be able to get the amp working the way you want. Shoot him a PM, and he will help you out I am pretty sure. Best amp tech I know! He does know his Shizz!! Anyhow. Hope you get it all resolved. And hope all this helps. Have a good one!!!

    It's no worries. Like I said, I just pay it forward! Hopefully you can get in touch with Crusher. I'm pretty sure. Now that he knows what is going on, if you just send him a message that you will be able to get the work you need done or at the very least the info to do it if you wanted to. Crusher is a stand up dude! Highly respected in the amp community. He is humble, that is all. His work speaks for him!! I'll just say that! Again, glad to help as much as I could.. Let me know how things worked out. Or at least update the thread. Have a good day man.
    73 and God Bless!!!
    Sean.

    Where does the foot pedal hook up to? What would you recommend?

    There should be a RCA jack on the back of amp. Google Heathkit SB200 and look at manual. It will show you which jack in back is to key.

    I know you have something rigged to get amp to key, but have you been able to load up at all?
