Current rating? Air cap? I think it's purely an AC voltage thing ;-)
Perhaps it came from a Broadcast rig. I've got a couple of caps around,
that are -nearly- that big. I sold one a little bigger than that to
Sammy/W5DPP a couple of years ago.
You do know, Mike, that this cap you're looking at is a split-stator,
I wonder what the max/min value the smaller section is?
I might have something to go along with that big cap ...
