Thanks to Jarrad (VK3BL) for this simple antenna switch box project.

Here are some of Jarrad's comments"

We discuss why Mr. T (connector) is best left as a TV Star, and why they're not suitable for use as an antenna splitter in a Ham Shack. We cover the Mini-Circuits ZSC-2-2+ HF Splitter, and why its such a good solution to the problem of splitting an antenna between receivers, especially if you want to do accurate comparisons. We also cover how to use the 'RX Loop' on the IC-7610, and demonstrate using it to split the received signal between itself and the Icom IC-R8600. Stay QRV for lab grade transceiver shoot outs, with directly recorded audio from each so you can make up your mind for yourself :) Please feel free to be in contact and ask any questions or make suggestions. 73, Jarrad VK3BL PS. The headphones are the classic Sennheiser HD-25s; they are the 'Adidas' special edition, hence the blue. We've got 3 sets of HD-25s from Jarrad's attempts at being a DJ :) References: Mini-Circuits ZSC-2-2+ Datasheet:
Thanks for joining us today.
