Removed, destroyed, refurbished, sandblasted and restamped.

Normal practice for RF transistors in that part of the world. Tell 'em what you need and they'll stamp 'em withe the appropriate numbers. Even the matching codes for a coupla bucks more.

So many people have been caught, like you, that I thought it would have been common knowledge by now. I got caught when I got "new" finals for the Yaesu MkV quite a few years back.

Thanks and 73, Alek.

Guys.. A heads up!

I just got scammed on some fake and counterfeit 2SC3133 transistors on EBay. They have the emitter and collector pins REVERSED! Blew up some additional stuff in the Icom 751A that I'm repairing.

Happy New Year!
