It would just be too cool if i could ask ' tx relay 3 ' to close when i select ' rx ant 1 '... to de-tune a transmitting antenna... ( mentioned this a while back, but thought i'd bring it up again....) on small lots, small directional receiving antennas for the low bands do not, typically, work properly if there is a large resonant transmitting antenna present...

    then, on transmit, I'd need ' tx relay 3 ' to open...... this would be nice because sometimes receiving on the transmit antenna is useful and the ability to switch to it quickly and easily seems reasonable... and I don't think there is another radio on the market that can do this...

    Additional possibilities with this flexible switching could include selectively switching a relay off or on in order to change phase interaction on two antennas for direction changes, noise reduction,etc. all from the radio control panel. A little bit of logic could go a long way ....
