Hi,<P>What brand and type of replacement grid leak resistors are recommended for an AK 40? I know the values but not the material...carbon, film carbon, metal film, etc. Thanks!<P>------------------<BR>Married to a card holding member of WAPSBINO; Wives Against Power Supply Baking In New Ovens!

Hi Tim,<P>It doesn't matter. I use 2% NTE carbon films for most things.<P>------------------<BR>73 de Leigh W3NLB | | Leigh@AtwaterKent.Info<BR> <A HREF="http://www.AtwaterKent.info" TARGET=_blank>http://www.AtwaterKent.info</A>

Wire the new leak under the chassis so it won't be visible from above. Leave the original in the clips, but disconnect 1 wire to the clip. The original may be noisy & you want it out of the circuit.<P>------------------<BR>
