My experience with the Top Ten Devices antenna switch has been very good. I
have used it to connect to antennas from 10M through 160M and with full legal
power limit. In my case, I have a band decoder from Top Ten Devices that
connects to the back of my Yaesu FT-1000MP and derives the 12VDC relay control
voltage from the Xcvr. It has small OD multi conductor cable going to the
relay box that is mounted outside the house under the eaves. The band decoder
permits automatic antenna or manual antenna selection. I always use the
automatic control and no longer even think about antenna selection. It can
control up to 10 antennas. I have it controlling drive to 5 different antennas
with only one coax cable coming into the shack. I have not noticed any power or
frequency sensitivity with the Top Ten devices I have used (even on troublesome
160M), and plan to continue using them.
