xiaobao_semi was the seller.

But you need to go here and watch this video. MOST (if not all) of the cheap hard to find parts on EBay from the far east are counterfeit.

A real eye opener!

Let us know who the seller is.

For me it is a semi that goes for more than a dime, and I am forced to buy it on the gray market, I power up my Tek 576 and if the part has some special spec I build up a jig to test it. RF power is a lot harder and there a known pull is sometimes a better shot.
