NEW PRODUCT  ShackMaster - Fully integrated universal band decoder and antenna switch controller.


Front and Rear Views of the ShackMaster


The SM-8 Shack Master is a full featured unit that contains a universal band decoder and antenna switch controller. It features five communication channels. All channels are active simultaneously and provide data translation for your station accessories. In other words, if you are using an Icom radio on the CI/V interface the Shack Master will output RS-232 data in Yaesu or Kenwood format. In reverse, when using a radio on the RS-232 interface the Shack Master will out an Icom CI/V data stream. 

The USB interface may be connected to your PC for radio control. The USB interface may be connected directly to a Flex SDR with no additional cables or interfaces required.  The Shack Master contains a fully bi-directional band data interface.  The band data interface operates in input mode when using band data from a Yaesu or Elecraft radio. When operating in band data mode the Shack Master will output data on both the CI/V and RS-232 interfaces with the frequency fixed to the middle of the current band. The band data interface operates in output mode when any of the other data interfaces are used for your radio.    Configuring the Shack Master is easily done from the front panel. No PC software is required. Antennas are easily assigned to each band. No diode matrix is needed for antennas used on multiple band.    The Shack Master can directly control the RC-16 relay controller. From the front panel you may assign any combination of 16 relays for each band.  There is also a wireless option for controlling the new 1x8 and 2x8 Hamation wireless antenna switches thus eliminating the need for expensive control cabling.
