YOUR RADIO.

YOUR WAY.

Revolutionize Installation.

With SWAPMYRIGS.

Swap rigs anytime.

Anywhere.

In your home.

On the road.

It's never been so easy.

The world's only patented, brand-universal,

separation and

swapping solution.

  Connect the same three separate cables (the ones you ran individually all the way from the radio's remote location). Double-check to make sure those cables still work -- they can be pretty fragile, (especially when you pull and tug them through the car during installation).
Radio is installed near the antenna. From this location, run the radio's three separate cables individually (one for the microphone, one for the speaker, and one for the control head) under carpet/upholstery.

INSTALLATION THE HARD WAY:

(WITHOUT SWAPMYRIGS)

THE OLD WAY: USING THE BRAND KIT

Frustrating. Time-consuming. Expensive. Limited Options.

3 Cables

Expensive

The Problem

The Fix?

Brand Specific

Run 3 separate cables for mic, speaker and control head.  A real pain-in-the-neck!

Pay more than proprietary mobile separation kits on the market and get less.  

Because other  kit's cables determine how far away

you put your controls, you can't customize your setup. What if you need longer cables, or one of the three cables gets damaged?

There's no easy solution.  Find the faulty cable, yank it out, and re-install a new one.  (And hope it works). 

Installation with model-specific kits means you can only use that one radio. You spent so much time on your installation, and now you're limited to using only this one radio. 

INSTALLATION REVOLUTIONIZED: 

WITH SWAPMYRIGS AND 

ONE GUARANTEED CABLE.

Install the radio out of sight near the antenna.

Plug the transceiver's microphone, control, and speaker jacks into SMR Box 1 (redbox), using cables we supply. 

Run our high quality VGA and connect the SMR boxes at each end.

Install the control, speaker, and microphone where you want them. Plug your microphone, control head, and external speaker (all of which fit the SMR jacks), into SMR Box 2 (red box). 

Cables Provided

Manufacturer's cables (originally included with transceiver).

Save Time

By combining the microphone, control, and speaker cables into one VGA cable, run one cable instead of three for a cleaner, clearer, streamlined look. Say goodbye to unsightly multi-cable clutter forever.

THE SWAPMYRIGS SOLUTION

PLUG-AND-PLAY INSTALLATION USING ONLY ONE CABLE.

AND ANY BRAND.

Fully Customize

Depending on where you want your radio, choose the length of VGA cable you need, and enjoy the quality of your components up to 150 feet away. Great for field days, emergency operations, and customized installations in your home.

Peace of Mind

Never worry about faulty wiring again. Built for strength, our copper shielded VGA cables can withstand the toughest environments. Each SMR is individually engineered by AE4S, power-coated in galvanized steel for a long, rigorous life, and contains circuit boards with soldered connections, not requiring power.  

Save Money

Never buy another manufacturer's kit again, even when you swap rigs. One SMR does it all. Plug the new radio and controls into the SMR boxes, run our VGA cable, and you're plug-and-play ready.

Use With Any Radio

Leave the installation and VGA cable alone. Plug the new radio into the first SMR and the microphone, controls and speaker into the other SMR. Reconfigure the jumpers on the new rig, and you're on the air. We're always here to help).

INSTALL ANY RADIO 

AND GO ANYWHERE

WITH SWAPMYRIGS.

THE ONLY PRODUCT OF ITS KIND.

SWAPMYRIGS is patented -- the only separation kit that can be used with any radio, as long as it has  modular connections. Installation with SMR means you're always plug-and-play ready, giving you the freedom to use any radio anytime, without the hassle of pulling old cables and running new ones, (unless you buy a new vehicle or boat, or buy a new house. With an SMR installation, go from a Yaesu to an Icom to a Kenwood in minutes.  SMR kits are particularly helpful at home, when you buy a second radio, or in the shack, when you swap one out for another, or during field day, when you switch out and share other rigs.

THE VGA DIFFERENCE

All VGA cables are NOT created equal, especially those used with computer monitors; most fail to meet basic industry standards. Our VGAs are copper-shielded, built-tough, and stomp-proof, with three coaxial cables and 4 twisted pairs, perfect for isolating audio and digital signals and eliminating crosstalk and interference. Enjoy quality sound whether your radio is 5' or 150' away. With our lifetime guarantee, rest easy knowing our kit, cables and every product we sell will meet and exceed industry specifications.  Each kit is individually engineered by AE4S. All VGAs are fully tested for quality and reliability before leaving our warehouse.  

STREAMLINED

SETUP

Radio installation is always easier when you run one cable instead of three. SWAPMYRIGS comes in pairs, one by the radio body, and the other at a remote location. Initially, they're configured (jumpered) for your radio with the option to re-jumper for other radios. We include cables to connect SMR box #1 to your rig, microphone, control and audio jacks, and one 15" VGA cable to connect SMR box #1 to SMR box #2. We also sell VGA cables separately in other lengths as needed. When you're ready to swap to another radio, simply switch the jumpers in each SMR box, (our manual shows you how), plug in the new device, and you're on the air.  

DJOQN/K7DX

After struggling to get my Yaesu FTM-400 installed in my old car and then suffering years of problems, I decided to try SwapMyRigs when I bought my new car. As it turned out, not only was the install a piece of cake compared to before, but the issues with the rig went away. Thinking the whole time it was a defective rig, I now realize Yaesu's kit caused all the probles. Once I installed the SMR kit, my rig has worked great ever since. I highly recommend SwapMyRigs to anyone installing a new rig. Not only does it make the process a lot easier running only one cable, but in the end you know your rig will work seamlessly.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

I bought the SMR system for both my cars and my Class A, 35’ Recreational Vehicle. The SMR is particularly well-suited in my RV, when I mount the radio in the storage area near the antenna and battery and the controls up front. I've tried SMR with five different radios: Kenwood’s D710 and V71, Icom's IC-2820 and ID-880H, and Yaesu's FTM350. It works great and saves a ton of time during installation, especially if you're like me and enjoy swapping to different rigs. You might find that SMR makes you want to buy more radios;-). Kudos, Dr. J!

SWAPMYRIGS works great.  Instead of having to pull multiple wires you can pull a single VGA cable. It also helps to “future-proof"" for future radios as the devices can be reconfigured for newer radios when you change. Purchasing was easy. I was able to select what I needed online and the items shipped quickly. I ended up buying two SWAPMYRIGS kits, one for my pick up, and the other for another car.

ABOUT US

They say, "Necessity is the mother of invention." SwapMyRigs was created by AE4S, a lifelong amateur radio enthusiast. Decades ago, he saw the need for a simpler, more efficient way to install radios. Also, manufacturers' kits were incompatible with other brands, and sometimes, even with their own product lines. 

 

Researched, engineered, and built in his basement, SwapMyRigs is now the only patented, universal, single-cable separation kit. Invented, designed, and 100% MADE IN THE USA.

 

AE4S graduated from Cornell University and retired from the United States Navy as a Captain.  He has a Ph.D., is a CPA, and is Emeritus Professor at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.
