    Concerning your homebrew 2 postion remote antenna switch…would this be able to handle 600 watts?

    • Might be a judgement call. Should be FB for switching current fed antennas. The relays I used are used in a lot of switch projects that are in full power stations switching yagi’s and dipoles. Several projects that have been published in the Contest journal use these exact relays, and others use relays that are very similar. Current handling is fine. If you were switching high voltage nodes(e.g. an end fed dipole), you would need to select different relays. And the won’t last if you hot switch them.
