ICOM Antenna Switchbox. The IC-ANTSB allows the operation of one external antenna for both handheld and panel mounted transceivers. The antenna switchbox unit can be mounted behind the panel so that the interconnect port is visible. Supplied with four foot interconnect cable.
Q: Is the 4ft interconnect cord available separately for this Icom antenna switchbox?
Per the tech at Icom: No, the interconnect cord is NOT sold separately.
Q: I need a similar cord to plug my Yaesu handheld into my panel external antenna port.
The Icom antenna switch box (11-18547) will work for Yaesu handheld's as well.
Q: What ends are on the switch block? Male?
No, the connections on the switch block are going to be female.
Q: Is there any reason this couldnt be installed in a certificated aircraft (e.g., in between a KX-155 and antenna)? Handhelds are worthless for transmitting inside a Mooney, want a usable emergency backup...
This is meant only for experimental aircraft and there is no TSO for this installation.
