Dual Antennas
« on: April 15, 2017, 11:32:15 AM »
We are wanting to use a tailgater in case there are too many trees for the dome antenna.  Is there a device to plug both antennas into and switch back and forth without reconnecting each antenna in the receiver during each trip? Thanks Taz and Scooter

Welcome!!!

Yes, it is often called an A-B switch and has 3 coax connections on it.

Here's one example of an A-B Coaxial switch.

Thank you, we should be back home in a couple days to pickup tailgater. Meantime we will find coaxial switch and hope she works. Thank you for helpful info.

I always recommend an A/B Coax switch as the other person did but with an additional recommendtation

The Roof top antenna connects to A-(Above)
the ground block you connect the portable to goes to B-(Below)

Don't forget to do a Check Switch (Dish) or Reset (Direc) when you change antennas.
