FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Will SWAPMYRIGS work with bluetooth in my vehicle?


No. SWAPMY RIGS is a wired method. Bluetooth is not an available in any commercial radio separation kit.




My state requires that I operate “hands-free” on the road. How can I go hands free with SWAPMYRIGS?


To the best of our knowledge, amateur radio operators are exempt from hands free requirements.




Why won’t my computer monitor cable work with SWAPMYRIGS?


SWAPMYRIGS was engineered to work with 15 conductor VGA cables, the standard specifications in IBM's VGA quality cables. Because few, if any, computer monitor cables support 15 conductors, we cannot guarantee your cable will offer reliability and efficiency at the highest level.




How do I know what length VGA to buy for my SWAPMYRIGS installation?


It depends on where you want to install it:
For passenger cars, trucks and SUVs, a 15' VGA cable works well.
For all other installations, such as a home office, RVs, boats, mobile homes, etc., measure and estimate the cable length you think you need and order about 10' more. For example, if you want your transceiver in the attic, near the antenna, and your controls in the shack 40' away, you would order a 50' cable.




Why would anyone need a 150’ VGA cable?


Long VGA cables like the 150’ work great for field days and remote towers and emergency services.




Do you provide cable to connect my control head to SWAPMYRIGS if the connector jack uses a special registered modular connection?


Yes! For radios with unique connecting jacks, such as YAESU’s FTM-400 and FTM-100, and KENWOOD’s TM-V71, a 5’ connecting cable is provided at no additional cost.




Tell me about your money-back guarantee.


Anytime you find that the system fails, it will be replaced or your money refunded.

ABOUT US

Bill Jordan, AE4S, 1978

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 within their own product lines. 

Researched, engineered, and built in his office/shack, 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 Navy as a Captain. He has a Ph.D., is a CPA, and is an emeritus professor at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Florida.
