Antenna sharing between RSP and Rig?

Postby MA3101SWL » Sun Jul 23, 2017 12:33 pm

I hope I can explain this properly so know one gets confused with what I am trying to achieve.

I have a Wellbrook loop antenna that I used with my RSP prior to passing my foundation exam. I also have a 40-10 windom that I am using for transmit with my IC-7300.

I am able to use my loop for receive on the IC-7300 whilst transmitting on the windom with no issues using a MFJ-1707.

I can use the windom for transmit and receive on the IC-7300 whilst using the RSP as a panadapter via the MFJ-1708.

I have no issues with rig control using Omnirig, VSPE, LOG4OM, RSP/Uno and WSJT-x. Everything is playing nicely.

Now I would like to be able to share the Wellbrook Loop between the RSP and the IC-7300 while using the windom for transmit, switching both the Wellbrook loop and the RSP to ground.

I would also like to be able to have the option to use either the RSP and IC-7300 independently or together as a panadapter however I feel this will be less of an issue as I can get everything communicating and working together when it comes to the software side.

Would a DX Engineering RTR-2 do what I am looking to achieve?

After contacting DX Engineering the RTR-2 will do what I want :)

HI how did you get on with the mfj 1707 ? Did you use the rf sense or hard wire.On the software did you manage to control the sdrplay from the Icom so it stayed in sync.I would like to use it as a panadapter on my ic 7100 with a wellbrook loop.I dont want to damage the preamp. Many regards John
