Let's get real about this WRTC antenna switching "issue".
The participants have 2 antennas to choose from - a 40/80 windom and a
10/15/20 tribander. That's it - no monoband stacks, beverages, 4-squares...
Think about it - the number of times that the participants will swap these 2
antennas in the course of a 24-hour, summertime contest is maybe 15-20
times. Doing it manually is no big deal. The converse of this statement is
that having a DPDT switch to flip between these 2 antennas is no big
competitive advantage, either.
