Works - nice feel, but...  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
This is a NICE switch! 6 positions with all unused positions grounded. I love the feel of the switch - very nice mechanics & no noise on HF when switching. I'd give it a 5 except for the following facts:

1) No ground lug - What were they thinking?
2) No way to unselect ALL antennas and ground your rig.
3) A round, can case, Everything in my shack is a rectangle except this switch.

With no mounting ideas, switching antennas is always a two handed operation. I tried velcro with no luck.

Even with these shortcomings, I'm happy with this switch. My favorite feature is the hidden SO-239's on the rear of the case - all the coaxes run hidden in the rear and in the same direction - zip tie heaven.

I tried extensivly to find specs for this - power, freq range, etc. Nada. If anyone has them, post them, please!

73's de Ken KG0WX
