    Yes, either add an RF switching relay or if you're willing to lose a few dB of receive gain you can split the transverter with a Mini Circuits power splitter. Without knowing the specifics on your transverter it's difficult to be more specific. I run a DEMI 2M PA, 222 MHz transverter, and 902 MHz transverter. Mack W 4AX Alpha Tester

    I am using a diecast box with 2 transverters (2m and 4m) build in. The alu box is also the cooling for the TX-Fets. 1 input from the Flex6300, 1 output to the 2m/4m/6m EA-antenna and a 2m/4m relay switch in the alu box, connected to the ACC PTT. With 1 toggle switch on the front of the box and a couple of indication leds it works perfect. Just choose the 2m or 4m tranverter in the flex6300 menu and take care to set the 2m/4m switch from the tranverter box in the correct position.
    10W on 2m, 10W on 4m and a lovely overview of those band on the waterfall display.

    Hi Rob,  Well I understand your comment on price. I have 10 expensive German made transverters that on average cost $1,500.00 each. The amplifiers, preamps and coaxial relays behind them more than triple that cost. A $600.00 unit to make sure everything switches correctly is a small price to pay for me. My operating conditions are different than yours. Good luck coming up with a solution that works for you.

    I just put together a second transverter with the attenuator board so I could use it with 28MHz from ANT2 , planning duplex capability for satellite working. But then finding I can't transmit where I want as considered out of band! So I may revert to your solution and forgo the duplex,. I have a 6300.
