• EightPak without controller, SO-239 connectors, indoor

EightPak relay box with SO-239 connectors, indoor use, needs a controller or controllers, see options below or click here.


This compact system allows you to share up to 8 different antennas with 2 different radios. Perfect for Multi-Single, Multi-2, and some small Multi-Multi contest operations. For DXers or collectors with two operating positions, you can now connect any of 8 antennas to up to 2 of your stations without rewiring or moving coax cables. The EightPak can be Daisy-chained to control more than eight antennas.

The system continues expanding our 4-wire control infrastructure and will integrate with existing 4-wire systems that include our BandMaster III band decoders and the FilterMax IV (W3NQN) band pass filter systems.

There are two new options for controllers:

1) Manual and / or software control

2) As above plus a built-in band decoder

3) Click here to go to www.hamation.com and click on "Control Center' on the side bar.

The band decoder that is part of the Integrated Controller supports Icom, Kenwood, Yaesu, and Elecraft K3 radios. Interface cables for your radios are available for $40 each or less.

A complete system will consist of one EightPak relay box and the DRC-8 controller or any assortment of up to three more controllers. The manual controller will integrate with BandMaster decoders you may already have in your system.
