Congratulations on your Bonito AntennaJet ASM300!
This antenna switch AntennaJet ASM300 offers many features much higher performance than the conventional antenna switch. This hardware is an Software Defined Hardware, SDH, where it was laid down in advance what they may need so clever software the added value increases but significantly reduces costs. With regard to this kind of appreciation of the value in use, the device will certainly provide some surprises, because there are now some things possible that are not even offer costly, professional equipment.

This manual is designed to introduce you to the basic functions of the software supplied with the AJ10-UNI detail that sets the features and operation modes of this antenna switch essentially. Additional updates to software and manual are planned and will expand the possibilities of the antenna switch again. The most current manual can be found here:

Software definined Hardware

The hardware that is controlled by this program described here AJ10-UNI can only be a Bonito AntennaJet ASM-300. It would also be possible that you have a NTI-300 DiRaSelect use as antenna switch. The performance of the hardware is identical, except for the fact that in the EEPROM are completely different data. Therefore, there will be significant differences in terms of software.

  • The Bonito software AJ10-UNI is available only with Bonito AntennaJet ASM300,

  • the NTI device, however, uses the AJ10-MINI, that works without EEprom modifications

Therefore, the AJ10-UNI can be retrofitted, but paid for, acquired for the NTI device.

The essential difference lies with the AJ10-UNI in the integration of unmanned aerial control, the log-controlled antenna switching or mixing realized independently, which are determined by the currently prevailing reception condition and frequencies. Thus, antennas and switching hardware can be under your roof or in another country because the AJ10-UNI software implemented worldwide remote control, via the Internet, via LAN or completely wirelessly via WLAN to the attic.

So this is the antenna switch ASM300 a software-defined hardware.
And only a software-defined hardware (SDH) is a good hardware,
which one we can realize good software.

Not the hardware determines what you can do with her special even before the development determined Bonito with its software, what the hardware can need. So it's just a matter of software that requires a special hardware. AntennaJet ASM300 This hardware is not only a simple antenna switch, rather a tool with which to optimize the opportunities available.

First, the program AntennaJet AJ10-UNI must be installed on your computer:


Turn the computer on and wait until Windows has started completely.



Connect the AntennaJet ASM300 and the PC with the supplied USB cable.
You can use any port on your PC.



After the first time you connect the device, the Windows operating system recognizes it as a new external device and automatically start the driver installation of a USB serial converter, which you can find later in Device Manager under the heading USB controller.

Because the device has AntennaJet ASM-300 has an internal EEprom with Plug and Play Instruction conventions, no external drivers are required, the loading of standard drivers instead initiates. Since such a driver installation is always looking for the latest drivers on the web, an existing Internet connection is mandatory, but not absolutely necessary. It is in that driver to a FT232R serial bus which is operated with the FTDIxx.DLL.

For emergencies, we have copied the necessary drivers on the CD in the directory [FTDI-Driver].


Now insert the CD in Bonito AntennaJet your drive. The setup program starts the same with his CD-Key from the EEprom. If the CD does not start by itself, go to "My Computer" or "Windows Explorer" to the root directory of the CD-ROM and start the installation process by double-clicking Setup.exe.

Important: For Windows 7/8 and Vista, you must run the setup.exe as an administrator.

The setup program will open ....

WithInstall you install the software on the PC.

WithUpdate is searched according to the latest program changes and optionally loaded.

WithRegistry run by an Internet registry or change your master data.

WithUnInstall delete all data on the computer and your master data in the Internet.

        The unit now and again as on the first day - Unregistered and the EEPROM is empty.

For the first function test the setup program has the same functions as the background to install program AntennaJet AJ10-UNI. The operation is therefore similar to the further description below.


first registration, reactivation and Update Service

The AntennaJet software should be registered before first use via the Internet on the server. This is necessary so that you can at any time identify and legitimize for updates and support and information as well as the keys are backed up by the EEprom your AntennaJet on the Bonito server. But you could also do without the registry, and then register later or completed to input data, correct or delete it.

After a UnInstall, or at the first use, it is always a re-registration. Otherwise, it is a reactivation, the personal information may be changed. Once reactivated, normally the master data is readable, otherwise you can only load saved master data easily or you give them a manual to generate a reactivation successful.

In the present case, the hardware at any time serves as SdO key donors

These so-called SdO key data are important, the loss may possibly have a new purchase of software result. Because it is easy to delete the data with UnInstall or your computer is just out of order - defect. However, it could also provide the missing information for the email to be a problem if you have not backed up your data, or have not read this guide simply because you wanted to sacrifice any more time as possible to be able to try out the horny software soon. Although the lack of information of the email increases the security of e-mail abuse, but it would be disastrous if your computer is sometime just gone just broken and you could not get any data from Bonito sent because your address or your email is not active or simply some things are missing. You certainly do not want that every thief in Bonito is calling and just then all of your data by email or letter in the mail gets to your use of software as his property, because the SdO is the actual protection of the software.

SdO is a German acronym of Bonito and means: Softwareschutz durch Offenlegung (Software protection through disclosure). The irony lies in the disclosure, because since the software from Bonito OpenSource is (was so exposed), the software piracy against NULL has turned. For by the hackers was the motivation taken to distinguish themselves as a circuit capable patrons. And because any thief, the software simply can not take advantage even without the hacker and without great programming knowledge, it is now also ensured that only one uses the software, regardless of who had paid for them. Because it's up to each purchaser of our software even if he wants to give something good other people. Therefore, if your SdO key somewhere 'Leave' open ', it does not take long that they registered person and thus be invalid for any others. Because each time you use the software to change these keys that are valid only for the current user and are constantly changing.

So SdO means that the software is designed so that you can be simply used by any thief if he only current SdO key has being denied then by a simple reactivation of the original owner to use the software. The thief can then enroll its own data and protect them from abuse better than the original owner. So the lost sense of guilt for software theft gets a correct value again and now is no longer just a minor offense. Moreover, the consumer must then also no longer pay for the damage that cause the software pirates.

Us then the stupid punished himself by letting 'get' his SdO key other


If you want to take the data or program update service to complete and your registry is missing or you want support and the entries are incomplete, then any service or support is denied because you are not able to identify with a registration. Remember also that a unregistierten software denies some functions.

The hardware itself is also a protection against software pirates, and can serve as a USB Protector beyond even other Bonito software. A little more information please refer to the instructions from the protected software under Install / Setup - USB KeyCode Protection.

This dialog also opens automatically after the installation is done.

  1. If the window does not open itself, click the Setup AntennaJet left on the [Registry].
    A window will appear: Service Registrierung per InterNet.


  2. Please fill out all fields. With the red triangle on the screen, you can add more details such as your e-mail address, etc.. Below you can find security issues, be queried at a telephone support request, for example.

  3. Now press "Register OK" button
    If the registration was successful, the message "registration ok".
    Confirm with "OK".

  4. The "Registration and Activation Options" field is only required if you later subsequently acquire an expanding software option that is activated by this registration.

start Program

After installation, you will now see the AntennaJet ICON on the desktop.
Double-click the ICON to start the AntennaJet software.

After starting the program the device to be controlled is selected. Typically, this will be only one device, but it is envisaged that other devices are selected. After that, then using the [Antenna 1], [2 Antenna] or [Antenna 3] a corresponding antenna are 'manually' on.  


The 'manually'  is therefore as particularly emphasized because it can also be controlled from another program or even completely wirelessly via Wi-Fi or via the Internet. Programs such as Bonito Bonito RadioCom or RadioJet have integrated control routines that can realize completely different services. Because these programs also control the frequency of a radio, those programs can perform fully automatic antenna switching and mixing, which are controlled via a frequency  dependent antenna specific measurement protocol. So now our inconspicuous antenna switch has suddenly a very different scope, which usually can not be derived from the technical data, so any comparison is with other things to absurd joke.

 But as I had:
Not everyone becomes a racing driver because he buys a super-fast Ferrari.



In the switch mode [Antenna Switch] only one of three possible antenna is always connected. In mixed mode [Antenna Mixer] all three antennas can be combined. Thus it is also possible, which is turned on, none of the three antennas in order to examine the effect of the switching function with the radio. The special feature of the mixture is the same-phase summation of the interconnection of the antennas. But this type of mixture makes already made ​​a significant difference to the usual switches or relays, the only obey the Ohm's law and thereby destroy even the amplitude of the applied frequencies under certain circumstances. So your available hardware uses not only simple switches but leads electronically from consuming complex rules in order to find the point of the lowest losses and keep.  

close the program, hide or off.

 The program can be overridden in specific terms only on [Exit = stop the switch control], because it must continue to implement the function in the background control by keyboard. The program thus operates hidden in the background even after the alleged off via .


If the program is now working hides, then it can from the taskbar (bottom right) are served. Regardless of in which program you are working on at any time, globally, the antennas are connected via the keyboard.

A separate operation using a program individually chosen is possible. Normally, a corresponding antenna is switched on numbers on the numeric keypad with the Ctrl +1, Ctrl +2 or Ctrl +3.



However, any other keys on the [Setup] button can be set. There you can select the keys and combination and determine the operator functions globally or explicitly on an arbitrary program. 5 such configurations are possible that can be deactivated separately.

e program can be started automatically when the computer starts, to turn on and off if you no longer desire the [set as Auto Start Program] button




Open Source

This program is available as a Microsoft Visual C project in open source, so that the control of the unit can also be integrated by other programs. But even in this case, the motto is:

all for free, but: 

The things described here are without any obligation towards third parties. The present document has been made without any guarantee of completeness or accuracy ..

The open source project is not Public Domain. It is not allowed any copy something and make it available to others. Therefore, it may not seem particularly plausible for some people, this is allowed nothing, but is still accessible here. Exactly for these people was now quite explicitly stated:

It is intended solely technically interested individuals an opportunity to offer to learn programming with such technical things or just to have fun with it. This usually happens in small private circles and never serves the purpose of acquiring. Especially is said, which prompt the placement to donate and acceptance of donations or other strange forms of remuneration which are exclusively the purpose of acquiring. And that the purpose of acquiring explicitly in terms of this Open Source project with Bonito deny. Furthermore, you will also find the source code that was left to us by private individuals. For these source codes, the same applies.

Nothing is allowed without written permission mandatory.

Of course there are in this open source project and a close circle of individuals, within the meaning of Hamspirit act and exchange ideas. In particular, people are always welcome, the translation, or various source code writing etc.. Therefore, no one is rejected, which has something to offer to the general public, but support through these projects is explicitly rejected.

So, the open source project is in commercial care of Bonito, which is sponsored and funded the project, which is generated about the hardware and software of this project to excess. The project will be made available worldwide in several languages and is made freely available in several stages of development. At the moment we begin with Level 1.

The project is available in the format for Microsoft Visual C v.6 and can via the link be loaded. Sources for other compilers such as Borland for Linux or are not available at the moment.
