Vintage man! vintage!

I'm looking for any kind of documentation on an Andrew coaxial switcher - 6740A.

Thank you

I don't know if I would call it vintage - it was still in production when I started in radio. Admittedly, that was fifty years ago. :-)

Thanks Shane! The one place I didn't think to look. Tech Support over at commscope was completely clueless. Wonder why it didn't come up in search results?

The reason why it did not come up in a search may be that the crawler for that search engine examines only web pages, and there are no 6740A switches shown for sale on the Surplus Sales site. Those Andrew installation instructions are buried in a directory and not on a page.

Came right up when I searched using the title of this thread ...including the hyphen. A search engine link to the .pdf. Didn’t have to look thru any directories. But very glad I could help. Even had some fun reading parts of it.
