Question
How do I introduce a secondary switch in the basement to operate my radon fan in the attic? Currently there is a switch adjacent to the fan motor in the attic. Where can I find a schematic that demonstrates this wiring?
Thank you for your attention regarding this matter.

Answer
Bruce,

What you're describing is a so-called 3 Way Switch.

Here's a site that explains:
