RE: Ping: DAK

Now that you say that, I do seem to remember seeing "sequentially shorting" many years ago, applied to rotary switches. Somewhere along the way, I must have erroneously associated "shorting" with that function. Do you know if there's a term for a switch that shorts all the contacts to common except the one at the selected position? Heathkit used wafers of that type in older selector switches to short unused inputs to ground. It's very effective at eliminating bleed-through.
