Good point. As a rule of thumb, the bandswitch needs to have a
comfortably higher BDV than that of the Tune-C, and the Tune-C needs
to have a BDV slightly higher than the anode's DC supply. The idea
here being that an arc at an air variable cap is no big deal, but an
arc at a bandswitch is. Also, vacuum-variable caps do not tolerate
arcs well, so they need to be protected by an external, calibrated
