[TowerTalk] Wanted! Sixpak Antenna Switch

I am in full agreement with Ronnie ZS4RY. My Six-Pack was delivered  with two 
of the 12 relays not making contact and requiring spring tension  
readjustments. Even now it occasionally requires a tap on the relay box to  get it going 
after a switcher operation. Maybe 6 times a contest weekend, a real  pain, but 
fortunately very close to my main op position. If I had to take the  walk 
Ronnie does each time, I would have trashed this thing by  now.
This product is way too costly for this problem to be inherent. I  wish I had 
gone in another direction now, but I am stuck as I have $500 invested  (relay 
box and two contrlloers for M-2 configuartion) and its not even a year  old.
73, Bob K8IA

Alfredo, not the the best antenna switch around.  Plagued by sticky relays 
which does not switch. Mine gave problems within  the first week and ever 
since. Just glad I mounted mine in a room next to  my radio room because its 
a pain walking around to the next room to hit  the box so that the relays 
switch. I have tried all the cleaning and  bending remedies offered by Array 
Solutions to no success.
Replaced  mine with the one from Microham, far better product, never had any  
problems with the product.

My humble  opinion.........
