Ameritron RCS-8V coax switch & AR-35 Rotator additions to the shack

When I put up my 5 band quad about 20 years ago I used that coax switch and five 75 ohm matching sections. Rented a manlift with a 65-foot capacity, which attracted the attention of a few neighborhood kids.

Took about 2 hours to complete all the sealing and waterproofing. When I came down and shut the machine off the kids asked if they could ride up. I told them if they got one or both of their parents to attend - and agree - I'd give them a view of the neighborhood. Five moms showed up, and I made friends with five kids.

The switch is still up there and it still works.

    Maybe. I wasn’t impressed with just clamping the shield wire to the boom with a hose clamp. I built a l bracket with so239 female hubs. I posted a picture on the recent gallery’s.

    Well I cut the matching stubs down 1 inch at a time from about 20” down to 6”. Still no real changes.

    Hello everyone, I have a old courier centurion pll 40 channel SSB, it has the extra channels and it has another switch that just moves the frequency down one channel on the dial, what is the purpose for this?
