[wxsig] Keying Kenwood HT and Current Consumption questions

Hi Everyone,

I've read through the archives & documentation but didn't see the 
answers to these questions.

1) I understand that Kenwood HT's require a different way of keying the 
transmitter. On most, I believe, you bring the xmit signal to a low 
impedance (on my Icom it's 2K) to make it transmit.  Has anyone 
connected the T238+ to a Kenwood HT?  I seem to recall that it may be 
just the opposite.

2) I'm planning to run the T238+ from a small solar panel and battery.  
Can someone confirm what the current consumption of the T238+ assuming 
that the display lighting is turned off?  I will be running it from ~12V.

3) Does anyone know what the current consumption is for the N4XI X1W-2v2 
Outdoor Humidity and Temperature Sensor?  I don't  know if I'll have the 
power budget to run the fan or not.  I may need to go with something else.

Thanks for all the help and the fantastic documentation!
