Default Re: Are AF11*'s repairable?

Hello,

I reckon around 30% of my radios have AF11* transistors in them so I've bought a load of AF116s very cheap and also AF124s, AF125s, AF126s and AF127s in Germany even cheaper to replace dead or leaky AF11*s. Around 50% of the AF116s even though New Old Stock were shorting out so Ron Bryan very kindly has recycled them all for me by discharging a 47uf cap thru the dud ones, between the screen wire and the other three all soldered together. These are all fine now and are now being used successfully to replace AF116/AF117s
