Its becoming a bit of nightmare here.

Have Drake B line  C Line  Tr4/Rv4   Ts530  all sat on a desk.

Cannot get behind the desk.

Am thinking of bringing all the headphone/keying lines out to a mini patch panel that I can just plug they key and phones into for the rig I want to use.

The Rf switching can be taken care of by a coax switch.

Any problems I am going to run into?  or is there a better way of doing it.  Thanks

Any time you start adding wires, you can add RFI issues, but running everything to a junction box or patch panel would be the cleanest way I could think of.

You are going to build a panel with jacks, each jack connected to the key jack of a single radio?  Should work FB.  As a precaution, you might just use two pair shielded wire but I doubt that's even necessary.  You could use a set of DPST switches but there's a danger of multi-keying with that.  Of course if you use a three circut jack you can use keyer etc.

That would look nice and clean, IMHO.

If you like kit building check out the W8ZR Station Pro.  It was designed specifically for what you are doing.
