I've recently begun installing the PolyPhaser flange mount coax blocking
protectors (IS-B50HU-C0 ~ Broadband dc Blocked Protector for Freq. Range:
1.5-400MHz, and IS-B50LU-C1-ME ~ Broadband dc Blocked Protector for Freq.
Range: 50-700MHz ).

The installation has negated the use of my HeathKit remote coax switch,
since it uses a DC switching scheme at the tower via the coax.

I'd still like to use some method of remote antenna switching....can anyone
inform me of another unit that doesn't rely on the above DC switching scheme
through the coax and offer some thoughts on the unit reliability?
Surprisingly, the Heathkit unit has done a great job for me for about 14
years with but one tiny, minor malfunction that was an easy fix.

Thanks in advance.......
