Hmmm. I had a disaster...years ago...when I tried cheap caps in one of my
NCL-2000's Boyd. I suggest that you keep a good eye on the capacitor
temperature...mine started boiling from the high ripple current...almost
lost the xfmr. A good cap will barely get warm to the touch after several
hours of standby in the SSB position. You should also check the voltage
drop across each cap....there should be a 5% maximum variation.
I just redid my 6M NCL-2000 and used the CDE 381LX since they snap right
into the holders.....also went to 100K equalizer resistors...the NCL PS
board really traps heat.
