MFJ-1708 Instruction Manual
RF Sense Transmit/Receive Switch
INTRODUCTION
The MFJ-1708 RF Sense T/R switch senses transmitted RF and switches your
antenna from receive to transmit using a relay. It shorts your receiver antenna
input to ground to protect your receiver. It provides an auxiliary contact closure
to ground during receive (opened in transmit) for an "On-the-Air" sign or other
use. It also has a control line input, which lets your key/keyer or PTT line switch
the antenna.
An adjustable time delay circuit gives you delayed switching. This prevents
your antenna from switching between dots and dashes or between syllable and
words.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
The MFJ-1708 RF Sense T/R switch uses a relay, which switches from transmit
to receive mode. When no power is applied to the unit, it is in the transmit
mode. Once power is applied the relay switches on and the unit is in receive
mode. When the unit senses RF or the control line is grounded from a keyer or
PTT switch, it switches the relay off and the unit is in transmit mode.
The delay adjustment allows you to change how fast the relay switches back to
the receive mode. It is adjustable from 0 to 2 seconds.
The auxiliary jack provides a contact closure to ground during receive (opened
in transmit) for an "On-the-Air" sign or other use.
The MFJ-1708 RF Sense T/R switch requires 12 VDC or 110 VAC with MFJ-
