This compact system allows you to share up to 8 different antennas with 4 different radios. Perfect for Multi-Single, Multi-2, and some small Multi-Multi contest operations. For DXers or collectors with 3 or more operating positions, you can now connect any of 8 antennas to up to 4 of your stations without rewiring or moving coax cables.
The 4×8-Pak includes the main relay box ($1,295) which as shown above is delivered in this weather proof housing suitable for outdoor or indoor mounting; all connections will be protected from the weather. See new indoor model below.
The system continues expanding our 4-wire control infrastructure and will integrate with existing 4-wire systems that include our BandMaster III band decoders and the FilterMax III (W3NQN) band pass filter systems.
1) Manual and / or software control
2) As above plus a built-in band decoder
The band decoder that is part of the Integrated Controller supports Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, and Elecraft K3 radios. Interface cables for your radios are available for $40 each or less.
A complete system will consist of one 4×8-Pak relay box and any assortment of up to 4 controllers. The manual controller will integrate with BandMaster decoders you may already have in your system.
3kW at 3:1 VSWR.
Low VSWR to 55 MHz.
All unused inputs are grounded.
Lightning protection at both ends of the control cable, and spark gaps as an added level of protection. (You should still use additional prudent lightning protection for your antennas and radios).
