Default Buddy Box for RDS 8000

Does anyone know where I can get a buddy box for an RDS 8000? Or better yet, will a Futaba or Hitec transmitter work?

From what I understand, only another RDS8000 can be used - other vendor's TXs will not work.

Several club members have purchased VG400 transmitters to use as buddy boxes with their RDS8000s. The VG400 is a nice solid 4-channel sport radio and this makes for a good, inexpensive solution. Just check your favorite classifieds and/or auction sites.
