Default Telemetry Logic 18mz

I'd like to setup some form of very basic logic on my 18mz to activate the warning function. I'm trying to set up a low RPM alarm for a turbine, but I would like the alarm to function ONLY when I have the gear in the retracted position. The problem I have is that the alarm is going at all times when the turbine is not running and the plane is on the ground. I couldn't find any setting that would assign a switch to the "INH/OFF" setting.

There is no way to use logic to control the telemetry alarms. However, you can assign a switch to silence the alarm.

In LINKAGE->TELEMETRY

You will see Alarm ON/OFF switch. Assign a switch there.

I dont see that in my telemetry menu. I have the ability to turn it on and off, but not to assign a switch to it.

I may have confused you by posting incomplete instructions

LINKAGE->TELEMETRY SETTING

See page 111

Perhaps that was released with a later firmware. Heres my menu:
