Re: 34As (Where Have All the Green Bands Gone?)
« on: September 10, 2016, 11:54:54 AM »
Hi,

As Jon said in a 2012 post on diodes, OA126s had dried up. I'm just wondering if the same is true for the 34A green-bands? I've tried a bunch of different places, and I'm only coming up with the Dbl Black / Single Black band type, and a weird silver with black band style. Anyone have any ideas, or am I too late to the builder's party to get my hands on any?

Thank you

BrianS

Thank you! Ordering right now... Just FYI with regard to 34As. I ordered from an outfit called SciToys. They had a pic of of the green striped type on the order page. I ordered 12, shipping was $11+. I received some kind of other diode. Tried to get a DMM forward voltage reading on them, and it registered either all over the place or didn't register at all. Just a "head-up" to the community...

Thanks again
