Coaxial antenna switches For Sale:

B & W 591 A  Coax "Transfer" Switch
This switch is designed to switch an auxiliary piece of
equipment in and out (For example, bypass a linear
amplifier, transverter, preamp, etc.).  It has four SO-239
connectors.   Good shape for $ 35 

B & W Model 550 A coax switch
This model will switch up to 5 antennas, and does NOT
ground unused antennas.  It has SO-239 connectors,
with the coax coming out like spokes of a wheel.
It is in good condition and works fine.  $ 30 

MFJ 1701 Six position coax switch
It is in a large rectangular box, with all 7 SO-239 
connectors coming out the long side of the box.  Unused
antennas are grounded.  Rated at 2000 Watts PEP, and 
1.8 to 30 MHz.  In nice condition for $40

2 position coax switch
These are a bit odd.  They look close to what a Dow Key
antenna relay looks like, but no relay coil to switch.  It is a
manual switch instead.  There is a SO-239 connector at the
top coming out of each side, with the common at the bottom.
In the middle is a bar that slides back and forth to select the
antenna.  It is in a very rugged sealed metal box.  Three
switches available for $25 each.

Workman CX-3,  3 position Coax Switch
This is in a small rectangular box, with the 3 switched 
SO-239 connectors coming out the rear, and the 
common coming out the front. Unused positions are 
NOT grounded.  Rated at 1000 watts.  It is in very nice 
condition for $ 14.

Goldline 2 position Coax Switch
Small rectangular box, with SO-239 connectors on the
end and the back.  Rated at 1000 watts.  $10

Dow Key type antenna relay
This is similar to the antenna relay like we used
in the 1960's to switch between transmit and receive.  
It has a 120 V  coil, but no auxiliary contacts.  It is not
Dow Key, but functions the same.  It seems slightly
heavier than a Dow Key.  $35

Prices do not include shipping from Florida.
