I have been using a DEMI 6M transverter with the Orion. Although I am having a minor problem with it, which may lie in the transverter and not the Orion, it is working quite well. I recently picked up a used DEMI 2M transverter and would like to be able to switch between the two. It would be necessary to switch three lines: RX IF, TX IF and the XVRTR KEY. Assuming I were to use coax for all the connections, are there any special precautions to observe regarding the switch type and wiring? Is such a switch advisable at all? In other words would I be taking a chance in compromising transverter receive performance?

I'd appreciate any input on these questions.

Tnanks and 73,
