Tom, G3OLB:

Years ago I remember my grandfather having a wireless aerial (as it was
known then) down his garden which came through an insulator in the
window frame and was connected to a ceramic knife switch on the window-
sill. This allowed changeover of the aerial from the wireless to earth
during thunder storms. Does anyone know of a source of such switches
these days?
... have a look at

http://www.surplussales.com/Antennas/Antennas-4.html

... the second item is similar to the switch that I use to ground my
umbrella antenna whenever not in use. Is this the kind of switch you are
looking for?
