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.
