This equipment (UNIT 15) is used to connect the output of the amplifier (YM), to tune it on a 50 Ohms load, before using it on an antenna or entering the antenna tuner (YCC). It is associated with a "dummy load" 50 Ohms (UNIT 16) with non inductive power resistors.
The motorised remote antenna switch (UNIT 14) is placed at antenna tuner output, via a bifilar feeder, to select 1 out of 5 different antennas.
In the RF switch, the front plate meter is not directly associated with the internal LOW POWER impedance bridge. Do not connect neither amplifier output, nor 100 Watts class driver to this bridge. Note also that this RF switch has poor SWR performance, his reactances are compensated by amplifier matching output circuit.

UNIT14: THE 5 ANTENNAS SWITCH
This antenna switch was placed on roof top of R-140 mobile stations.
