Hi - I am following the Amp Camp Amp build notes online. Step 32 talks about installing the Blue Rear Panel Switch for its normal application but there is no information about the correct orientation of the switch ie. which way is up? The switch has 6 tags in two columns and 3 rows. Tag 5 is connected with a black wire to the WHITE RCA. Tag 6 is connected to a resistor which is then connected to the WHITE RCA. But if I have installed the blue switch upside down I assume I have the wires soldered to tags 5 and 6 incorrectly. The build notes DO explain how to orientate the black front panel switch at Step 41. A similar explanation would be good at Step 32. The attached photo may explain my question more clearly. Thanks Geoff.

Thanks ItsAllInMyHead. Would it be possible for 6L6 (Jim Tiemann) to make a note of this in the build notes for the 1.6 Version ACA at Step 32? It would reduce confusion for newbie builders. Step 41 does address the issue of orientation of the front panel switch.
