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.
