I was wondering if anyone had experience using a KVM (Keyboard, Video,
Mouse) switch with their ham computer. I have a small home office associated
my shack, and it would be advantageous from a space standpoint to
consolidate all my computer resources via one keyboard, monitor and mouse.
These switches allow you to hook up a keyboard, mouse and monitor to the box
and then switch between up to four computers. This really is appealing, as
I have two desktops and two laptops in the shack.
I'm concerned about RFI in both directions. Has anyone used these and had
any good or bad experiences? I have a very nice KDS monitor that seems to be
fairly quiet from an RF standpoint and I'd like to use the same keyboard for
all my applications, as it will help with logging accuracy.
I appreciate any inputs. I am looking for these at a site call
Buyexytras.com, which I've found to be a good source of low-cost PC
I'm not associated with them in any way.)
