It's in this connection that I recall a post by W2VJN some years ago
recounting tests of the relays used in their TopTen relay boxes. Despite
the fact that these 10A-rated relays are very small, and only cost about $2
each in small quantities, George told of successfully testing them
repeatedly at full legal power. Sort of undermines the big is best theory.
