Automatic Band Filter Switching

Right now, our band filters we use for remote operations require the operator to switch the band selector switch when changing bands.

Jon Reeves is current heading up and effort to build a device that will connect to the radio and the filter that will allow for the radio to control the filter band switching. Once installed, the operator can change bands on the radio or from N1MM logger and the filters will follow relieving the operator from having to remember to change the filter band.
