Default Curiously refreshing attenuator

the Altoids Attenuator -- there is enough room in it to make a T-Attenuator and the Altoids metal container with these two insulated BNC's has a surprising flat impedance.

ham radio guys use the bigger altoids containers for receivers, mixers, etc.

Does it matter if you use whole Altoids in the attenuator or does it work better when you powder the Altoids? Ha, ha.

Pretty neat case. What is it about Altoids tins that make them the "go to" tin for small electronics? A curious phenomenon, no? I mean, why not a random cough drop tin, or a tin from some other type of mint?

In addition to the Altoid headphone amps on and, there are a bunch of sites like this one:

that feature cool electronics built into Altoids tins. Pretty fun to look at.
