But if the switching frequency was say.... 30-40khz, wouldn't the sidebands be so far out of range so as not to cause interferance.

You can use a 90-degree hybrid splitter/combiner to produce LHCP and RHCP for
two receivers. Switching will produce sidebands at the switching frequency and
alias undesired signals into the receiver passband.

Hi all,
Has anyone ever considered the possibilty of using PIN diodes and a free
running square wave oscillator to electronically switch between RHCP and LHCP?
The switching frequency would have to be high enough so as to not introduce
a tone to the signal.

Just a thought I have had for awhile.
