Hah! Spoken like someone with a big panel. 2 amp breaker only fits if you "lay it down." <G>

I'm actually fairly proud of that panel. I think it represents a very large capability/expenditure quotient. But you "turbo-guys" may not appreciate what a struggle it is down here at the bottom for a retired civil servant. <VBG>

I'm a firm believer in "appropriate technology". That radio is now the oldest in the panel and the one with the greatest likelihood to get me home in severely adverse weather. Despite all the "whiz-bang" area navigation and satellite technology, 1947 ILS still offers the best accuracy.
