    I'm using a Futaba T8J with a R2008SB Receiver. I'm using the S-Bus port on the bottom of the receiver. Is Ch #8 still available to me or does the S-BUS share that channel

    That's what I want to do, I assigned it to switch F. Are you using a turnigy switch? What endpoint values are you using?

    I'm using turnigy 10A. I left the end points at 100/100 and works perfectly. I'm also using the F switch

    Got it working.

    Installed a Turnigy Receiver Controlled ON/OFF Switch to some model Strobe lights and siren.
