What schemes has anyone configured to use 2 transverters with a 6400?

Does anyone have experience with New Tohtsu CX-230 SPDT with 3 x BNC RF Connectors Coaxial Relay 12 VDC Coil?

    You can simply use the tx outputs per band to control the transverters. You can use an RF relay tied to those same tx outputs, or use an RF splitter / combiner for RF to/from the transverters to the single transverter in/out on the 6400. The transverter output is low enough level it should not bother the transverter that is not in use. Of course it is simplex :-)

    I’m sure others will also come up with similar solutions.

    Thanks Ted.

    That's my first take as well.

    I can build a bjt/fet driver for the relay and drive it from either a tx output ot a USB-bit pin.

    I've got a couple Mini-Circuits ZFSC -2-1B splitters.

    I also have a BNC coax relay. I'll try both as see what works better. The advantage of the splitter is there is no active switching and asociated circuitry involved.

    Trials soon...
