Scanner disconnect on RF sense

Post by hardy » Tue Aug 08, 2017 3:27 am

Hey guys,

I'm working on getting a mobile setup installed and had a question regarding my scanner.

I'll have three radios and my scanner.. 4 antennas total. The scanner has a dedicated antenna.

My question is, is there anything on the market that can disconnect the antenna from my scanner if I key up on my other radios? I've seen t/r switches, but they seem to be more for operating a receiver and transmitter on the same antenna.

I'd like for the scanner antenna to be disconnected if I transmit on any of the other radios.

I would prefer to be able to buy something pre-made, as I lack the tools to build much of anything from scratch. I'm aiming to have everything installed before I go on a road trip from California to Illinois on the 2nd week of September.
