During the FISTS Sprint this past Saturday, I was playing around with the
'dueling CQ' function in the TRLog logging software program. The function
alternates cq on each radio.
The antennas in use were a 10' mast-mounted vertical (12avq) on one band and
a C3E on the other.
Obviously, the C3E got more responses than the 12AVQ.
Thinking about it, I concluded that I need to wire up a relay to use the
active radio switching of TRLog to swap antennas. I'm using the WX0B
Six-Pak as my remote antenna switch.
The frequency of the switching will only be about once every ten or fifteen
The duration would only be for a few minutes at most before moving on to S&P
or just CQ'ing on one band.
I doesn't seem like it would be stressful on the six-pak, but I wanted to
find out if anyone has any insights about it that I may be overlooking.
What are your thoughts?
