12V activated relays with 50Ohm termination for unused antennas to reduce reradiation and unwanted internal coupling.

Impossible for one radio to transmit directly into another.

I measured worst case port to port isolation to be 61.2dB! This is a whopping 24dB improvement over the previous version, while keeping the same features and size with a lower parts count!

Jeff, AC0C, has done a thorough analysis of the switch and posted the results on his web site. Read the charts carefully. The "both antennas selected" cases are the typical use. There are several other interesting configurations as well. GREAT STUFF!
