Hi All

I am trying to design a KISS arrangement for switching all antennas between 
2 radios.

Right now I am thinking of just having each antenna terminate in a coax jack 
and manually move the cable from each radio to the antenna I want to use.

One thing I have wondered about. Right now I have all my antennas coming 
into a central aluminum box with some big switches from the old BC 348(?) 
tuning units.  Now, all the coax shields are connected together on the input 
of the switch.

I was thinking about mounting the coax jacks for each antenna on a piece of 
insulating material to keep them separated from each other.  I just wonder 
if it would make any difference in the amount of interferance between each 
radio or just not worth doing.  TIA and 73
