The 1p 6 way switch from a WW2 tuning unit (TU5B, TU6, TU7 etc) for the 
BC191/375 transmitter. Last time I looked, $3 or so from Fair Radio Sales.
6 ways - 160, 80, 40, 30 and 20, 17 and 15, 12 and 10.
It isn't a shorting switch, which some may consider a problem: it isn't easily 
gangable to make 2 w 6p (although that can be done) but it's cheap and got 
plenty of insulation and current carrying capacity. Since the contacts are 
tinned copper, they can even be readily replaced if necessary.
