Ameritronís Remote Coax Switch lets you remotely switch up to five separate antennas using one inexpensive small control line (like standard telephone wire). Eliminate a tangle of troublesome coax and have a simple and neat installation with just a single feed line.

The RCS-8V consists of two units, the weatherproof switching box that mounts on your tower or mast and the control unit thatís 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, great for the HF/VHF/UHF operator.

It handles over 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 youíve selected. A Lexan scratch-proof panel has a markable surface for labeling your antenna posi- tions.

RCS-8V operates from a 120 VAC power source. Use any 6 conductor control line (not supplied) and allows safe operation with 14V control voltage.
