Ok...

Here's examples....

10     pf would be marked    100 ( in some cases would be marked 10 , but with a painted spot on ceramic disk caps)
100   pf                                 101
1000 pf                                 102

22     pf                                 220
220   pf                                 221
2200 pf                                 222

etc...

The first two digits are the value, the third is the multiplier,  all in PF

multipliers are:

0 = x1
1 = x10
2 = x100
3 = x1000
4 = x10000

Another example...

the caps marked 104

10 x 10000 = 100,000pf = 0.1uF

Let me know if you have them, or need some..

Bruce, I may not be reading them right. I have the ones above , I thought it would say 1000 of or 2200 of. Some are the exact numbers above

So you don't have any caps that are marked:

102, 152, 222, or 104 ?

I'll send them, it just seems strange.
I say that because of the way I kit these, I do them 20 at a time.
I could understand maybe missing one value, but to have skipped on bin 4 times seems pretty unlikely.
Otherwise, there should be 19 other people letting me know they are missing these caps too.

I'll get these out today

Bruce, i dont now how many are left over because i am not done, i have abount 35 left and none are over 850pf, i have not installed any over 850 pf. Bruce, send me all of the ones on the item list over 850 pf, also send a nut for bottom and top bolt for both spacer assembly if you have those.

Going through the parts in the kit and noticed none of the multiband board capacitors are over 820pf, all values over 1000 were not sent, also c37 and c47 have no values listed, do you short the space or leave blank?

Bruce, as I checked my work, I noticed that I have only installed 2 capacitors on the main board at j2b and c8p. All others are strictly on the multiband board?

Thanks for getting me straight, I am only missing one cap, I broke it removing it, can get one locally.
