<In a Rx array, I agree.  Sealed switches are the way to go.
But how much RF power do you dare run through a contact
rated for 2amps at 30v or 60v?  My assumption has always
been that you needed to go to a relay that had at least 5-10
amp ratings to survive even modest QRO.

Pete didn't indicate in his regular query as to whether this
was a Rx array or some sort of Tx antenna.  So rather than
rambling on with guesses, maybe Pete can describe his

Since the title of the thread is "Relays in  RX array" I
assumed he meant a receiving array. :-)
