I just recently purchased an Ameritron AL-811h Amp with an Ameritron Interface ARB-704 and a Antenna Tuner from MFJ-986.

I want to connect all three items to my ICOM 706 but the instructions are limited and I have never dealt with an amplifier before.

The interface has 4 cables but none are marked and the instructions are unclear to me.

Basically, I am at a loss and do not want to wire this up incorrectly and blow something up.

I am looking for simple instructions for someone who is not a tech geek.

More difficult than with a typical base station--the Icom 706 was designed as a mobile rig and lacks the usual hookups one might expect.
