Remote controlled antenna switches (coaxial)

RCS-8VX Ameritron Remote antenna switch

RCS-8VX

Replace 5 coax feedlines with one! Ameritron's remote Coax Switch lets you remotely switch up to five separate antennas -- so you can replace five coax feedlines with a single coax. Eliminate a tangle of troublesome coax and have a simple and neat installation -- with just a single coax feedline. The RCS-8V consists of two units -- the weatherproof switching box that mounts on your tower or mast and the control unit that's placed at your operating station. VSWR is less than 1.2 from DC to 250 MHz and less than 0.1 dB loss at 150 MHz -- if you operate HF to VHF/UHF. This RCS-8V is for you. It handles 5 KW below 30 MHz and 1 KW at 150 MHz. You can ground unused positions or leave them open. The indoor control unit is all metal to prevent RFI and TVI. It also has LEDs to indicate the antenna you've selected. A Lexan scratch proof front panel has a markable surface for labeling your antennas. The RCS-8V operates from 240 VAC power source. Uses any 6 conductor control line (not supplied) and allows safe operation with 14 volts control voltage. The cable is connected with screw terminals, no special connector required.
