Why’s this Black Box called a Brick?

So that’s why they call this a brick amplifier; just a black box, no on-off switch, no lamp to tell you it’s on, nuttin’ but a 30-watt, 30 dollar brick!  Tested it in my car by driving some distance away from friend Steve, KA4RSZ, on simplex and lowered the power on my HT to the point that he could tell I was weak, then plugged in the amp for a good signal report.  Brick 2m amp
