Any idea of what the current handling capacity would be of the generic silver
mica 500V cap?
Due to the intervention of Murphy, I may be pressed into using a few of these
paralleled in a L/C match for an antenna feed for this weekend’s WPX RTTY
contest. I don’t have time to find doorknobs because I’m about a day or so
from knowing what the correct values are going to be. but I do have a pretty
big junkbox of SM units in a big spread of values.
I was hoping someone would have a feeling as to the current carrying capacity.
Applied power will be around 1300W at 7 Mhz. Xs will be in the 10-25 ohm
range (so 2200-1000 pf). Which I think means peak currents of as much as 12A
