Products description

Automatic antenna switch for Icom transceiver (see FA 12/2016), complete kit

The FA-AS makes it possible to connect four different antennas, e.g. to the IC-7300, and to select them automatically depending on the operating frequency. Operation and programming are simple and intuitive, the operating status is indicated by multi-coloured LEDs. Operation with separate transmit and receive antenna is possible. Each of the four antenna connections can be assigned to any amateur radio band.

A separate socket is provided for the connection of a transverter.

The FA-AS can be controlled with the band voltage or via the CI-V interface of the Icom transceiver.

In addition to the printed circuit boards and the processed and printed housing, the kit contains all the components required for assembly. Only wired components are used.

New from firmware version 1.4 (2018): Extension by the 60 m band, parallel connection with other CI-V devices (CAT interface) possible without mutual interference.
