Can someone help me? - Robbe Multiswitch 16 decoder

Is anybody out there using a Robbe Multiswitch 16 decoder along with Their F-14 Navy tranmitter? If so, can you show me an example of your installation. I am having trouble getting this unit to work. I presume it it to be used for turning on and off various switchable functions. So far I've plugged in a Robbe duo-switch, and no go. Returned the decoder to Subcommittee member Al Matava, who cheerfully exchanged it for a new one in a sealed box, which doesn't seem to work either! Am I simply missing something? Sure could use your help guys. :)

Hello

From what I can see, you don't need the robbe duo switch: the multi switch decoder is a basically 8 duo-switches.
Each connector has three prongs: center is positive and the ground is either on the right or on the left or nowhere depending on the position on the 3 way switch on your radio.
I dunno I explained this clearly enough, if you need more explanation, feel free to contact me !
There are 10 kind of people, those who undertand binary and those who don't !

Thanks Thierry, I really appreciate your repsonding to this question so rapidly. I just couldn't stand it any longer after I posted the question, so I went back to working out a solution. I found out, and just as you state... the MS 16 decoder really is just like 8 duo-switches. Now I have the circuit worked out for my Nav Lights. What a relief to finally be getting somewhere again. Can't say how happy I am to be part of this terrific organization. :)
