...and according to the post from Greg Dowd (who was on the design team at
Datum), it had a 24V PSU as an add on for the option.

Doable, but surely chassi ground of the LPRO is also tied to electrical
ground? Last time I looked around, it sure looked like things where tied to
chassi too.

If so you need to electrically isolate the whole LPRO. The 10 MHz is easy
enough with a transformer. The control signals would not be too hard.

Another solution is to let the -12 V lead also be chassi... which works but
is prone to errors...
