[AMRadio] Switching between multiple rigs

I use the alpha delta coax switches for the antenna connection between 
transcievers.  these have built in lightning protection if you run a good 
ground to the switch and short the unused antenna connection to ground.  I 
do not use this on the output of the linear amplifier, rather on the input 
so 2 different radios can share the amp.  One radio is a TS 2000 Kenwood, 
the other a Ten Tec Orion.  I have never had a problem and the switch has an 
off position which connects neither rig and grounds both antennas for 
additional lightning protection.
