Test before installing
I purchased this item, and found the band selector knob was rather tight. Not having used one before, I went ahead and installed the control unit in the shack, and the remote unit on the roof on a mast central to my ham antennas. The indoor control knob broke after about 30 days use. It jams, and wont turn unless turned backwards several times. After contacting Ameritron, they suggested the switch probably became unsnapped, and instructed me to open the box and snap it back together. What I found was when turning the knob, the entire circuit board its mounted to flexed away from the mount. Ameritron agreed to repair the switch, but require the remote outdoor unit be shipped back as well as the indoor controller which means several unusable antennas for the duration of the repair. I was also offered the option to repair it myself.

After repairing a brand new Ameritron Amp I purchased, which had a broken solder joint on the power connector, I would not recommend this manufacturer to anyone who doesnt want to spend time and effort testing and repairing their new (and rather expensive) equipment themselves.

As for the operation, it does switch the antennas well, does not add any noticable loss, and has the potential to save a lot of expensive coax runs. I just wish their quality control was somewhat better.
