YOUR RADIO.

YOUR WAY.

Revolutionize Installation. With SWAPMYRIGS.

In your home.
On the road.
Radio installation has never been so easy.

INSTALL YOUR RADIO 

AND GO ANYWHERE

WITH SWAPMYRIGS.

  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)

  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.

THE OLD WAY: USING THE BRAND KIT

Frustrating. Time-consuming. Expensive. Limited Options.

3 Cables

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

Expensive

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

The Problem

Because other kits' cables determine 

how far away you put your controls, you loose the ability to customize your installation. What if you need longer cables, or one of the three cables gets damaged?

The Fix?

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

Brand Specific

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 this one radio.  That's too much time and sweat for 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). 

THE SWAPMYRIGS SOLUTION

PLUG-AND-PLAY INSTALLATION USING ONLY ONE CABLE.

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.

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 ho.

Peace of Mind

Never worry about faulty wiring again. Built for strength, our copper-shielded VGA cables can withstand the toughest environments. The SMR boxes are individually engineered, coated in galvanized steel, and power-coated for a long, rigorous life. All circuit boards have soldered connections and require no 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 one 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).

THE ONLY PRODUCT OF ITS KIND.

SWAPMYRIGS is patented -- the only universal cable kit that works for all transceivers with modular connectors. An installation using an SMR kit allows you to use any radio without the hassle of another installation in the future. Go from a Yaesu to an Icom in minutes. Great for when you buy a second radio or borrow another one on field day. 

OUR VGA CABLES

DO IT ALL

Not all VGA cables are created equal, especially those used with computer monitors.  Most VGAs fail to meet basic industry standards. Our cables are copper-shielded, built-tough, stomp-proof, and weather-proof. Our VGAs also have three coaxial cables -- perfect for isolating audio and digital signals, and four twisted pairs to eliminate crosstalk and interference.  All conductors are copper--never aluminum. Enjoy quality sound from 5 to 150' away from your radio. 

WHY CHOOSE SWAPMYRIGS?

Radio installation is always easier when you run one cable instead of three. And because SMR works with any radio, change rigs without ever running new cable again. 

Simply switch the jumpers in each SMR box, (our manual shows you how), plug in the new device, and you're finished.  

PLUG-AND-PLAY READY

 SWAPMYRIGS comes in pairs, one located at the radio body, and the other at a remote location. Initially, they're configured (jumpered) for your transceiver, but you can always re-jumper them for future radios. We include cables to connect SMR Box #1 to your radio, microphone, control and audio jacks. We also include one 15 VGA cable (to connect SMR Box #1 to Box #2. Our other VGA cables are sold separately in the length you need.

STREAMLINED

SETUP

Rig in the truck, controls up front. Rig in the attic, controls in the shack. Connect your radio to SWAPMYRIGS Box #1 (near the antenna). Put your controls, microphone, and speaker exactly where you want them, and plug them into SMR Box #2. Finally, connect the SMR boxes with one fully-shielded VGA cable. 

 

LIFETIME

GUARANTEE

We guarantee our kit, cables, and every product we sell to meet and exceed industry specifications.  Each kit is individually engineered by AE4S and all VGAs are fully tested for quality and reliability before leaving our warehouse.

After struggling to get my Yaesu FTM-400 installed in my old car and then suffering years of intermittent problems, I decided to try SwapMyRigs when I bought my new car.  As it turned out, not only was the installation a piece of cake compared to before, but the problems with the Yaesu went away. I thought the whole time that it was a defective rig and now I don't even need to send my rig to Yaesu for repair, since obviously it was Yaesu's cable at fault the whole time. I can therefore highly recommend SwapMyRigs to anyone installing a rig in their car. It not only makes installation easier, but also eliminates possible cabling issues.

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

N4APG

I bought the SWAPMYRIGS system for both my cars and Class A, 35’ Recreational Vehicle.  The ingenious system is particularly well-suited to an RV system where the radio can be mounted in the storage compartment close to the antenna and battery. I have tried SWAPMYRIGS 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 LOT of installing and removing of cables, especially if you’re like me and enjoy using different radios. I liked it so much I got two SWAPMYRIGS systems - one for the car and one for the RV.  You might find it makes you 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 recognized a need for a simpler, more efficient installation method.  Also, manufacturers' separation kits were incompatible, even with their own product lines.

 

Researched, engineered, and built in his basement, SWAPMYRIGS is now the only patented, single-cable separation kit.

 

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