Default Re: What type of capacitor for R.F. decoupling ?

Any recommendations and info would be great.


Depending on the type of receiver it is they may not look out of place for the year, I'm working on a 1955 Granco FM domestic radio at the moment and with the exception of 2 electrolytics every capacitor is either a ceramic or silver mica.
