Yes. I am successfully using these (together with a delay) to sequence both
PAs and preamps on 2m, 70cm and 23cm. I have added some hardware to properly
sequence the PAs and preamps, but I still use the EXT Cont connector. Note
that these are open collector outputs, so without a pull up you'll see no
voltage. Also bear in mind they're limited to 20mA and 20V max.
