I finally got my hands on all the components needed for my 6×2 antenna switch system. The PCBs are made by SM2WMV (sj2w.se) and are of high quality! The making of the alu. box took more time than I thought just because I was out of screw-nuts for the SO239 antenna connectors so I had to snitch 2 or 3 from other stuff of little importance, the results of the snitching was not so good though..
I did not have time to solder the cables and the remote control box is also at the “to-do list”. My idea was to make 7 options for each radio, switch 6 antennas and the last one is for turning the antenna box remote capable without desoldering all the cables.
The drilling went easy and was done quickly!
Heh.. As I said, the results was not that good.. But I made it!
The complete connector plate
PCB mounted and ready for soldering
The brain in the switching system. Also a design by SM2WMV. Interlock Card that makes it impossible for the 2 radios to use the same antenna.
I hope I got time for the soldering part tomorrow…
