Coax bulkhead

For the last week or so in my spare time I have been working on a coax bulkhead for my window for my coax runs to go too and throw form the window without letting the bad weather and bugs outside.

Hardware used:
* IP65 ABS sealed boxes
* SO259 panel mounts
* RG213 coax (mil spec)
* various nuts and bolts
* length of timber

Cost:
About 30AUD and spare time and cans of drink ;-)

Homemade Coax Switcher

This is a coax switcher unit I made out of some parts lying around in the junk box. What I have done is modified an old ‘100 Watt CB antenna matcher’ unit and added an extra SO238 and a double pole switch to be some functional I can now use with my 2m/70cm setup.

Parts break down:
Metal box 51x51x32mm from JayCars be ideal, or bigger for more sockets
3 x SO238 panel mount connectors
2mm silver plated copper wire
double pole switch
