Automatic Antenna Switch for Flex 6xxx

edited April 2019 in New Ideas
We have developed a 1 x 4 Automatic Antenna Switch (AAS) for use in the shack to control either a Flex 6xxx or an Amp connected to a Flex 6xxx.  This provides automatic antenna selection based on parameters set up in the Flex USB screen.  Switching  can be accomplished by frequency range or band or a combination of both.  The AAS comes complete with USB cable for the Flex and requires a 12VDC source at less than 1 amp.  There are AAS's in beta test now and will be shipping shortly.  When the Flex is turned off, all antenna ports are grounded automatically.  The AAS is rated at full legal limit.  It will be priced around $279 plus shipping.  Contact [email protected] for preliminary details and availability Ed W2PH

    Good news, we are running ahead of schedule for shipment of the AutoAntennaSwitch for the Flex 6xxx series..  We will begin taking orders this weekend for shipments beginning the first week in April.  Orders will be processed on a first come first served basis.  We had many inquiries and our first build should adequately support all of them.  Please email me at [email protected] to place your order, for literature or to answer any questions.

    The Auto Antenna Switch has been replaced by the Universal Antenna Switch effective July 1, 2020. The UAS allows automatic antenna control from the Flex 6xxx series, most Kenwoods, Yaesu, ICOM and Elecraft radios. You can see more at https://wwww.w2ph.com.
