I am looking for a switch that will accept 6 lines. My goal is to not have so many wires in the shack itself. I have plenty of room in the attic to place the remote box then route the one "control" connection down to the desk. Once I decide on which one to get, will there be a problem placing the remote box between my entry panel with the arrestors and the control box on the desk?? I don't think I would have to buy one with the internal lightening protection then and it would make the desk top area a lot cleaner. Main question here is...which one to get so I am looking for suggestions /experiences. Thanks info all of the help you all provide. Nice having so many "Elmers".
