Ham Plus has an impressive set-up of antenna switches. Even for 6 x 3 and up to 8 x 4 that more and more contest stations are using. Even some high class Flex users. Their port isolation is very good as well. Anyone that have experience to share how well they work with BCD decoding and their external "push button"  controllers with remote software?

Hi Keri, I had use the Hamplus systems for a few years and they are fantastic, quality, isolation, power support,  I have a flex 6700 works perfectly with CAT, the controller. model I use is the MBD8E, but I know everyone has Flex Radio support.

do not worry you're making a great choice.


are the best antenna switch I've ever had!


Best Regards.

Hi Thomas, thanks for the input. Do you use your Ham PLus with 6700 + MBD8E now? 73 KAri

Kari,  I use the Hamplus 4x8 with Green Herron wireless controller.  It works great - clearly more capability than I need, but sure was a nice addition to my station.  I mounted it on a wall, which made all my cabling neat, clean, and easy to access.   Having the 4x8 took care of my Flex 6700 (A and B)  and allowed me to connect two other radios as well.

Mike, thanks. Is there holes in back for wall mount? Have you tested it for SO2R? See comment from Bill below.

The way I read their documentation, it says:
 "The operation is individual, which means that only the selected radio will have access to the antennas."  That means no SO2R or Multi-Multi radio use.  Not like the Array Solutions 2x6 or Antenna Genius.

I checked with K9CT and Jeff at Green Heron and they use the 4 x 8 with SO2R with great sucess. So clearly it works. From Ham Plus they say that they support all contest modes.
