This week, we added our 12 volts to the relays and made a terminal board. This will be used to activate the antenna switch. The switch does not consume a lot of power, so we will use the same 12v that is powering the 5 volt regulator. For testing, Connect 3 LEDs to the outputs. […]

Done!  All of the antennas are installed and connected.  Three days of coax routing, adding connectors, lightning protection, grounding and the antenna switch – and waterproofing all the connections.  So nice to have this back!  What is there (I know, it’s hard to see!) – from “top to bottom”: Tower Mounted:  2M/70CM dual band vertical; […]
