The new VE2DX SO2R 2X6 Interlock PCB will be an option for the VE2DX 2X6 SO2R Remote Antenna Switch OR OTHER 2x6 so2r SWITCHES, it will prevent a radio to select an antenna already in use by the other radio. if the user wants it an added buzzing sound will sound off to prevent damage to the radios, AT NO TIME during this process will the second radio be able to connect to the antenna being used.Finally, the VE2DX 2X6 INTERLOCK will offer 2 separate alarm signals (12VDC) that the user can use to trigger another form of alarm as needed. .
If your are like me you have a pair of 2X6 remote switches facing each other and all you Band Pass Filters (BPF) on the selected outpouts, this automates the application of the BPF in your SO2R setup, well a GREAT application of the INTERLOCK PCB is here to prevent both stations access to the same BPF, such an event in the HEAT of a contest would be unforgiving for the station.
And WHY NOT!
Our INTERLOCK PCB is small enough to fit in most 2X6 remote switch enclosure! thus making it possible to install the INTERLOCK PCB directly in it.
Yes it is the boards are Ready. They will be offered in multiple version;
1- Just the PCB for 50$us plus S&H.
2- PCB and Parts 75$us plus S&H
