SP6CYN high power antenna switch  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
I love this switch. The control unit looks great sitting on my desk. The display which comes in a choice of colors, mine is yellow, is clear and bright.Even with my not so perfect eyes can easily be read from across the room. I really like that instead of just having ABCD or 1234 you can program descriptions so there is no guessing which antenna you are connected to. The builder was gracious enough to do the initial programming for me so it arrived plug and play. He also provided extra parts such as an extra rotary encoder if at some point I wear out the original. The outside unit, as stated in another review, is built like a tank and attractively engraved with the name of the unit. And despite coming from Poland the unit arrived very quickly. Once I got the control cable soldered up the switch connected up easily and has performed flawlessly. If you want an antenna switch that is a cut above the usual and looks cooler doing it, this is it.

I use this switch for almost a year, everything works fine and so far I am very satisfied with this product.
The control unit looks great and the letters pointing to the selected antenna are perfectly legible.
This is a very well made product.

WELL DONE PRODUCT  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
Iím using the switch and the control unit almost a year.
Everything works flawlessly and so far Iím very happy with it.
The control unit looks gorgeous and LEDs letters indicating the name of antenna selected are perfectly readable.
The switching box that you mount on the tower is made like a tank. I opened it and noticed the PCB very well done; conductive tracks are very thick, solid. Their website says they are using large company to make the PBC for them. Itís a very well done product. Iím giving them solid 5
