SB 104: replacement of PA amplifier Transistors
With what recent transistors can we replace 2N6456 OR CD2664 of PA of SB 104 ? (MRF??)
And eventualy for the Driver the same question for CD3442 OR PT6619?

Have somebody the transistors characteristics of the driver of the P.A of the SB 104 (CD3442 or PT6619? I do not succeed in finding them on the net.
The PT6619 is a TRW manufactured part. TRW used the "PT" prefix in their numbers. TRW no longer OEM produces these parts. (Obsolete)
CD3442 or PT6619, which are the RF driver transistors in the Heathkit SB-104 transceiver.
I have not been successful in finding these (search engines) on the Internet.
Many of their products were based on or similar to the Motorola MRF/SRF series RF transistors.
You will need to cross reference this part with a Motorola or Toshiba equivalent.
RF Parts (California - USA) can assist you in that process.
Advanced Semiconductor Inc. (ASI) manufactures a replacement line of PT transistors originally made by TRW and Motorola which they have now obsoleted.
Theses PT transistors cover a full range of HF, VHF and UHF frequency ranges.
For PT6619 price, delivery, and datasheet, see the part table on their web page (contact them for details -- per your question).

Surplus Sales of Nebraska (Bob), lists this surplus (discontinued) part as "in stock" at $ 40.00 USD
Good luck !
