The Remote Driver Board Kit extends the maximum distance from your ham shack to your antenna by replacing a portion of the run of control cable with CAT5 cable. This kit allows the user to run control cable from the antenna to the remote driver board placed at the bottom of the tower, and then run CAT5e cable up to 900 feet from the remote driver board to the ham shack. Note that this setup requires a power source at the base of the tower (a 33V power supply is included in the kit). This kit includes the 5 driver ALP board required for compatibility with the DB42 antenna.
Included in the kit:
- 5 driver Advanced Lightning Protection board (with driver chips)
- Aluminum mounting plate (does not come with an enclosure due to many possible mounting configurations)
- 33V Power Supply with cord
- 5′ Crossover CAT5 Cable
- CAT Cable Coupler RJ45
- 5′ USB A to mini USB B cable
