The Sage I had looked like new. And it worked like that until I messed up. I replaced it with a SJ2W kit I got a couple years ago. Now I always make sure the right antenna is switched in with low power before I sock it with a KW. Lesson learned. I opened it up and there was a rotary contact that was burned up. HV from high SWR will do that. The latching relay was something else to behold. It took 28V to energize it and then it stopped drawing current until another position was selected. I think it always went around in one direction, but not sure.
