I am looking for a way to switch from my transceiver to my receiving antennas 
with some type of automatic switching unit.Here is the scoop.I presently have a 
Kenwood TS 850.These rigs do not have a seperate receive antenna jack on the 
back as do some of the other rigs.I use an array of 4 EWE antennas to receive 
on the low bands.Right now I use the typical selector switch to go from my 
transceiver antenna to the EWE antennas.I find myself in a fury of contesting 
and pileups forgetting to switch from my receive antennas to the transmit 
antenna,therefore I blow the terminating resistors on the EWE's.So far my unun 
has been able to take the jolt of 1500 watts.I am wanting to build or purchase 
something that would automatically switch to the transmit antenna when I key 
the rig,so as to eliminate my problem.Is there such a beast available or am I 
just stuck with buying another rig that has a seperate receive antenna already 
in the rig?

                                        Thanks, Bob-WT9Q
