FM Modulated Changer Install??

I ran the changer main power to unswitched battery V+, and the
control to the trigger on the back of the Blose head.  When my
radio gets turned off with the changer powered on, the changer
shuts off with the radio and will restart at the same track/time
when the radio is turned on.

You should verify that it doesn't draw significant current when
off if you wire it this way, I imagine that most add-on RF setups
are designed to work this way.
