That's exactly what I was thinking of when I asked for buffered.
Significantly more protection than hooking directly to the IC pins.
Now if a couple of those 8 pins were also open collector that would be
real gravy. That would making hooking to CI-V (computer control) and
CW (gotta have that) easy.
