Please forgive me if I have missed it, but don't seem to be able to find an answer to my question so far:

Would anyone here happen to know if the PowerGenius XL will have PIN-diode instead of relay TX-RX?

    In SO2R Power Genius uses relays because they can make high isolation and it easy survive with 2.5kW. And the relays are quiet really.PIN diodes are less reliable on this power range.

    Pin Diodes can not give 70db Isolation at 30MHz and above !
