    390 pf - 82pf

    Post by harpy on Wed Mar 14, 2012 12:37 am



    Excuse my ignorance, but what kind of cap is the red rectangle with the dots, Mica? Do the 390pf and 82pf caps ever need much attention?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    that's a mica capacitor, and those are the most stable type of caps so even though very old rarely go bad or go out of tolerance.
