IC Socket Orientation
« on: 2011-08-06, 21:10:16 »
Today I started configuring my new RemoteRig.  The IC sockets in the Control and Radio units were factory-installed 180 deg different from each other.  In other words, the marker for what would normally be pin one is at the top on one unit and at the bottom at the other.

The manual shows the indicator at the top for both Control and Radio units, but the written instructions seem to indicate the socket orientation doesn't matter. 

I want to make sure before I apply power and unleash the magic smoke.

Thanks in advance

pin 1 is at the position shown in manual, no matter how the socket looks like or is mounted.
