Bob and Lee,
Mouser Electronics lists a line of C0G (NP0) ceramic, radial leaded
capacitors in their current catalog. They range in value from 10 pf to
0.022 microfarad. I can give you the part number for any value you might be
interested in, or you can look them up yourselves. Start off at
and go from there.
