Some control system updates

I’ve done some more work on the electronics at the station. Now I am trying to finish up the driver modules which will control the antenna switch system. These cards will sit in a room in the basement of the house connected to 2 pcs of 60 leaded cables which leads into the barn in a separate room which will contain all antenna switches.

There are a total of 80 source outputs and 40 sink outputs which are controlled over the homemade openASC bus which works very much like the old coax Ethernet bus.

I will try to finish up this during the week so I can maybe install this within a few weeks at the station. I will also try to finish up the antenna switch boxes so that system is installed before the snow goes away, because then it’s time for antenna work.
