Butternut HV9 doorknob caps ?
I did a search on the ZED & Google .
The threads here were closed and some of the links were too old .
I am looking for some replacement doorknop caps and confirm the values .
From what I have found there is one - 200pH 15K & two 67pH 15K ?
Looking for a min. of one 67pH 15K , but since they not so easy to find info & source a set would be nice .
Usually you can get them from Bencher/Butternut.
RF Parts has some...
Should be "pF," not "pH."
Steve I was on the Bencher site before in needed them and saw they had them now I go back and can not find on there site .
I am under the impression they may cost the most there , from others comments .
Once I got some values off other threads , I could not match at RF parts the values ?
I just pulled out my notes and I have the correct pF on them , a short circuit to the noodle
RF Parts has the 200 pF 15kV cap listed there; they have 67pF but only at 7.5kV. I don't know if that's a good replacement or not (for 100W operation it should be; for 1500W operation, maybe not).
The Butternut P/Ns for these are:
200 pF = Butternut P/N 290-05
67 pF = Butternut P/N 290-06
You might call them on the phone and ask how much they cost.
I'l check those out , as far as power , my rig is misbehaving , refurbished Yaesu FT 897D and it is putting out 3/4 - 3 watts depending on band etc.
So should be OK , I do have a couple amps Heathkit SB-201 & Collins 30L-1 that I received non-operational and they seem to want more than a few watts to drive .
Now to get another HF rig so I can dig into the 897 issues .
So I will want to go to higher power .
Thanks again John
