Holy smokes! I can't believe the construction quality . . . the sun might go nova, but that switch will keep working.

I'm in.

Cheers, Jock

Welcome Jock! Yes that switch might be virtually indestructible! :) I think they were used in "shelter" system containers like this:

For a better impression of how tiny it is (I have normal ('M') sized hands):

what puzzles me is the fact that, if the switch was used in those "field containers" it doesn't (seem to) have some kind of support flange or the like

Hi, Andrew,

Good suggestions.

So since the topics of QRP and SWLing are fairly different, I decided that having separate discussions made sense in that it would be easier for users to control their new post notifications. Plus, it was great to finally put QRPer.NET and SWLing.NET to use! :) Ha ha!

Thank you for joining in. I will make this public later this week.

Cheers,
Thomas
