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.

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.........
