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

My collection has quite a few Silvered mica's, but as Andy says, they don't look the part, I would prefer axial types.

I thought that the capacitor technology might have been important, i.e. not to use disc ceramics due to the low "Q"?

And the fact that 1000pf were chosen simply because they could get away with them for the size sound pretty logical, so 10nf maybe the way to go.

Great ideas as usual on here.

Thanks

Nick
