Let's analyze this:

You send a voltage to run the preamp.  It needs voltage to switch to 
Tx mode.  When RF from your transmitter arrives it switches over to 
bypass the preamp.  I would guess if you turn off the power to the 
unit, it can't operate correctly, so how is a sequencer going to 
help?  I have not owned one of these units so not familiar with their 
power wiring.  If you have two 12 volt power contacts then you might 
run the preamp separately from a sequencer.
