Well, I didn't post such information to my recollection, but I do use 
relays to switch my open wire feed line. I have several double pole, 
double throw open frame relays out of old Johnson KW Match Box tuners 
that work exceptionally well for that application. (They are 115vac 
relays) I have also used 12 vdc Dow-Key coax relays for switching 
open wire feeders. Just tie the bodies of two of them together 
(physically) and use a separate relay for each side of the feed line.
