My trusty TT 238B tuner failed me today.  Seems as the 4 position antenna 
switch has lost it’s detents and the wafer just spins.  After getting the rear 
panel off, I cannot see the entire switch assembly due to the manner that it is 
attached to the circuit board.  I don’t see any loose parts or evidence of the 
broken detent so wondering if anyone has had to replace this wafer switch?   

Getting the circuit card/back panel apart will require more work due to the 
SO-239 connectors, but my guess is the actual wafer switch might be a Ten Tec 
manufactured item.  

I’d like to hear from anyone who has similar issue.
