Owners of SB-220/1, HL-2200 and Drake L4 and L4B....Your amps all use a very
hard to find resistor. The SB-220 et al uses a .82 ohm 2 watt resistor for
a grid shunt. This resistor also acts like a fuse, it blows up with semi
catastrophic events. The Drake L4 and L4B uses this resistor as a fuse in the
HV lead. You always have spare fuses on hand for your equipment, but not
always this one. If you ever blew one of these, you know how hard they are to
find. I have seen many use higher wattage resistors in place of a blown one,
that is a risky replacement just like using too big of a fuse. I am offering
an exact replacement resistor that is BETTER than the original. The original
resistor was a silver banded, these are gold banded!! I am offering them in
lots of 5 for $5.00 shipped. Don't miss that DX or the next contest because
a blown resistor.
