    I need to get a simple o/12V switch, the type fitted into a diecast case with F sockets. They used to be really easy to buy but I guess are no longer used in satellite systems so aren't manufactured any more.

    Apart from one on the Sadoun website that will cost four times its value to ship here I can't find any, does anyone know a source of these either in Europe or Fleabay?

    Photo as an example of switch type I'm after.

    Unfortunately my (non sat) application requires it to be triggered by an external voltage. I bought a couple a few years ago but since then they've become as rare as rocking horse...

    If you don't have DC on the RF connections and you can adapt to/from another type of connector, try searching for co-ax or coaxial relay on Ebay etc. You might have to put it in something if you want environmental sealing.

    Google for "Spaun SAR 12 F", that is still sold at several places (about € 25).

    Thanks chaps, the Konig is one I've used before so it's handy to have it's product number, thanks CH. £12 postage from Germany though, ouch! Or maybe I'm just being tight fisted.
