LDG DTS-4

General information:

  • LDG DTS-4 is more than just a simple antenna switch.
  • DTS-4 can even be controlled remotely with optional accessories! DTS-4 is suitable for frequencies 1,8 to 54 MHz (160 - 6m) and can run up to 1500 Watt (6m <= 1000 Watt) charged.
  • The switching of the antennas are easy and simple push of a button
  • Also available: Set "All positions on Ground"
  • All connections are in the UHF standard. (PL)
  • A control LED indicates the position of each current channel.
  • DTS-4 is required for operating 12 volt DC power supply.
  • DTS-4 features a Ground terminal at the rear of the housing.


The Remote control unit (option) has the name DTS-4R. This is not necessarily required for operation.


Visual Basic - Control Application

Instead of the remote control unit, I use a small VB-control application developed with Microsoft Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition with SP1 - DEU (free development environment).

It uses the serial port on your computer and a simple interface optocoupler
The corresponding control codes are described in the manual.


The interface will be incorporated into the 9-pin connector and housing needs at the other end of a three-pin 3.5 mm stereo plug.
