Automatic Remote Antenna Switch 6x3
  • Automatic Remote Antenna Switch with 6 antennas by 3 radios and one linear amplifier.
  • Command and power over RF cable.
  • Inteligent band decoder and antenna memory.
  • All antennas and radios are switched to ground when not in use.
  • Non-simultaneous operation.
  • When the power are switched off, all antenna inputs are routed to ground for protection purposes.
  • Automatic operation compatible with: ELECRAFT, KENWOOD, YAESU, ICOM, or any other Radio that uses one of these communication protocols.
  • Manual operation compatible with any other radio.

The AS-61WL is an automatic antenna switch for three radios and six antennas. There are two independent boxes, one for the antenna switch that is near the antennas, AS-61WL, and another box with the Push Buttons for the selection of the antennas and the Radios, RC-603WL, that is next to the Radio. The connection between the two boxes is only made with the RF cable (RG-58 or RG-213). This cable takes RF, power and the necessary commands for the perfect operation of this system. The RC-603WL also allows the insertion of a linear amplifier or a wattmeter, or both. In this way these equipments will always be connected with the Radio and the antenna selected. The operation is individual, which means that only the selected radio will have access to the antennas. Unused antennas are automatically short circuited. To facilitate the operation, the RC-601WL also has a third internal switch that switches the Send commands and the Com port to the selected Radio.
