Many contest stations use multiple relays to not only select the band, but
also to select which antennas on that band will be used and how they will be
phased. There is nothing wrong your idea of using two coax relay switches.

Hi to all,
I have a question about the use of remote coax switches, and am sure someone
has done this before, but I have no experience with it. I presently have
tower in use (175' coax run from house to tower), and am using a remote coax
switch at the base of the tower to feed a number of antennas. I have a
tower built, and will also have a number of antennas on it. I would like to
use one of the outputs on the coax switch at the first tower to feed the
switch on the second tower (140' from first to second tower). This would
the expense of a second 175' of coax from the house to the first tower.
Have others fed antennas through two remote coax switches? Had any problems
I'm not sure if this is a good idea, or if I should just spend the extra on
coax and have a completely seperate run from the house to the second tower.
Tnx - 73,
