See page 18 of the KXPA100 manual. Yes, you must provide a connection
that grounds the PA KEY connection to the KXPA100.
I do not know of a commercial cable that will provide KEYOUT from the
Flex to the KXPA100.
If you are not able to build the cable yourself due to whatever
problems, perhaps you can find a local ham who would be willing to
assist you with the soldering and cable construction. Look for a ham
who has been licensed for many years (likely has a 1X3 call). We used
to build our own gear and questions like this rarely came up. We were
all expected to be able to do soldering and follow a schematic by our
peers. Sadly, those days seem to be no longer the norm.

I am a happy KX3, KXPA100 owner. I had the opportunity to obtain a Flex-1500
radio. I want to use the
Flex-1500 with the KXPA100, since the Flex is a qrp radio.
My question: Do I have to have a cable running into the KXPA's PTT plug or can
the KXPA100 be keyed up by
the Flex-1500 via just coax connections?
I am terrible making cables and soldering, which is why I am loath to attempt
to make a cable. And no one
seems to sell such a cable. The Flex-1500 has a nine pin female DIN, While the
KXPA100 has an RCA PTT.
