To switch all the available antennas for the two HF stations Thomas PA1M and I have designed and build a new antenna switch system. All the switches are steered by MicroHAM software and hardware.
All the switches are home made by several designs. Last part off the new system is to build 6 high p[owner bandpass filters and buy 3 triplexers.
Also I have to finish the cables and make it more correctly.

Switching system

In this part the four radio have their coax entry.

In this part are the switch for each band.

Here are the U links from MicroHAM witch wil swicht all the realys in the switch as also the other parts outside like stack switches relays for tuners etc.

A ham radio friend who owns a drone visited me and made a nice picture with his drone.
I was a bit windy so next time he will come back and make a fly by.

Since last update of the shack I made some changes.

I added a few rotor control boxes (RT21 Green Heron) to steer the rotators in the top of the rotary towers.
I added two Meastro’s for the Flex 6600 radios’s.
I build a rack for the second HF station the same as is in use for HF and VHF station.
The last updates will finalize this part of the station.
More updates in the near future will take place outside.

I recently bought two Flex 6600 SDR radio’s. One for VHF and one for HF. This forced me to finally reorganize my shack.
I installed it on such a way that all the equipment is easy to acces.
In previous setting the VHF station was too much apart from the rest.
There are again 3 operating positions. 1 VHF operating position and 2 HF operating positions.

This summer sporadic E season I want to be qrv on 70 Mhz. Therefore I bought an Icom IC-7300.
I have no antenna yet for the 70 MHz band and have to make a decision if I want a dual bander or a monoband yagi.
