Anyone use this combination with an MFJ 1708 antenna switch.

Thoughts?  Is there a setup configuration?

The switch can use RF sensing to toggle the switch but you may want to use the IC-7000’s rear panel external PTT output like used with a linear amplifier instead. That will usually switch before RF is present and will protect the SDR better.
