This doesn't answer your question, but maybe it will be of some use.  
Last time I was at Ameritron I noticed some small relays they were using 
on many of the RF amp boards to switch RF, and I got the info on them 
because I know the manufacturer doesn't rate them for an RF environment 
(that doesn't mean they won't work for that purpose).  I think my RCS-10 
antenna switch uses them too.  It isn't the same relay you are asking 
about, it is a small sealed PC board mount relay.
