If using this method for a pair of two- wire beverages, all FOUR ground
wires would need to be switched individually, not 2 and 2? Will simple SPST
relays work or do they need to be RF rated? Thank you.

I agree. We have been thinking of switching at the coax cable location.
Will need to correct my Beverage notes page.
The W4ZV and W3LPL method will work.

relays to connect only the selected Beverage to the ground rod
and disconnect the other seven.
I've done this for 31 years from 3 different locations with no problems.
