A very easy solution for a standby switch for the SB-220/221  series...
The front panel is held on with 4 screws.  I drilled out the hole for  the 
screw on the lower left corner, installed a mini-toggle switch there. Since  
I had previously added a small relay, so T/R was only switching 12 volts, 
this  became a trivial fix for the lack of a standby/operate switch.

Where were you when I needed  you?

That would have been a fantastic addition to my SB-220  rebuild.  I
originally intended to use an original switch but couldn't  find a good one
and bought a generic one.  It would have been just as  simple to do what you
did while I had it all apart.

Great  idea!
