What remote control switches are being used for AM nowadays? Shielded for coax or open relay(s) on a panel/board? Controllers? Automatic?

4 Port would be nice so dummy load would be connected to the transmitter that's not on the air.

The transmission line is a 1/2" late 1980's version of the current 1/2" CableWave (RFS) LCF12-50J.

What's best for jumpers? Should I bother with connectors or just wire it up? Transmitter will probably be 7/8" EIA output, but DIN connectors might be nice for hooking everything together. Is there a 7/8" EIA to appropriate size DIN adapter. I've never used DIN connectors anywhere.

Being an FM Guy, I've rarely dealt with real AM. Always tried to keep AM at least 50 dB down :)

Thanks mucho for your comments and suggestions.  ...Lyle
