Hi Lee

With the Antenna setup you have in Summit I think you should consider the K3 Twin or Yaesu Twin solution to be able to use a radio which match the Antennas. Both those solution gives the same feeling as with the IC-706 with the front panel.

Yes Its works great!

Im using the remoterig with the Kenwood TS480S with wonderfull results.

I just mounted two Double Bazokas for 40 and 80m, my second Qth is about 50Km form my ussual Qth. After see that everything works perfect Im working on new set up there
with a Hexbeam, a double bazoka for 160m and the Expert 1K-FA.

A new way to have fun and to set up big and long antennas without any problems, with anybody  :o
