Big surprise today. Pali from Hamtech sends me a brand new sequencer as sponsoring . It is the new model where
you can adjust the LNA voltage if you have a long feed line to compensate for line losses. Don't forget to mention:
with this sequencer you can directly control a 12V or 24V relay for horizontal or vertical switching.
