I'd be grateful if anyone could help me identify an antenna switch I've
come across.

The thing has a distinct military look, likely Navy and had a tag wired
on saying:


Amplifier Input Selector

It is in a light grey aluminum box about 8" on a side with 5 lights
across the

top of the face.  Also on the face is a selector switch marked

 On the rear are 6 SO-239 jacks in a hexagon around a central SO-239.

  The rear has the Dow-Key trademark and the mark 71- 250402.

The guts of the thing are 6 plunger type 115 vac solenoids which each
bend a leaf

connection from the center conductor of one of the 6 SO-239 connectors to

connect with a disk connected to the central SO-239.

Any info on this would be welcomed.
