Remote Antenna Switch

Postby w4cm » Sat Feb 16, 2019 9:47 pm

Can anyone share the manufacture of a high power remote antenna switch you are using and how you are interfacing ?
I am using a Anan 7000DLE.

I built this switch:

I am running it via the PLC (progammable logic controller) feature of DDUtil.

I love it! And I've been finding more and more things for the PLC to do on my station. Every time there is something I want to turn on and off I assign a macro button in DDUtil to control another relay on my PLC. I even modified my radios so that I can remotely operate the bootloader switches.

Some photos here: http://wu2o.dyndns.org/station.html, alas no detailed description of constructing my switch or the PLC wiring, but perhaps entertaining nonetheless!

I am using a homebrew coax switch that is controlled by an ip controlled relay board. I will try to get some pics uploaded and more details.
