I have an ic-7000 and a softrock ensemble 2 rx. I want to switch between these two when the ic-7000 transmits. I was looking at the MFJ-1708 but the delay in switching for RF sensing mode may well damage either the ic-7000 or the softrock and there is no ptt-rf delay setting in the ic-7000 for direct toggle of the relay. Without a delay I believe that either the ic-7000 would get high SWR or the softrock would get some RF or both.
Are there any other options? I am considering returning the ic-7000 and getting something else that better fits my needs.
The guys doing SDR with the Kenwood TS590 are using an ELAD switch box.http://ecom.eladit.com/epages/990298944.sf/it_IT/?ObjectPath=/Shops/990298944/Products/%22ELAD%20ASW-1%22
