Quick Overview


Ameritron's 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 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, great for the HF/VHF/UHF operator

It handles over 5 kW below 30 MHz and 1 kWat 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 panel has a markable surface for labeling your antenna positions

RCS-8V operates from a 120 VAC power source or RCS-8VX for 220/240 VAC. Use any 6 conductor control line (not supplied) and allows safe operation with 14V control voltage
