Ameritron RCS-8V

The Ameritron RCS-8V replaces five coax feedlines with one! Ameritron's Remote Coax Switch lets your remotely switch up to five separate antennas -- so you can replace five coax feedlines with a single coax. Eliminate a tangle of troublesome coax and have a simple and neat installation -- with just a single coax feedline.

The RCS-8V consists of two units -- the weatherproof switching box that mounts on your tower or mast and the control unit that's placed at your operating station. VSWR is less than 1.2 from DC to 250 MHz and slightly higher at 450 MHz with less than 0.1 dB loss at 150 MHz. If you operate HF to VHF/UHF then the RCS-8V is for you. It handles 5 KW below 30 MHz and 1 KW at 150 MHz. You can ground unused positions or leave them open. The indoor control unit is all metal to prevent RFI and TVI. It also has LEDs to indicate the antenna you've selected. A Lexan scratch proof front panel has a markable surface for labeling your antennas.

The RCS-8V operates from 120 VAC power source. The required 6 conductor control line (not supplied) allows safe operation with 14 volts control voltage.
