[AMRadio] .02 replacement cap

Hi Joe:

Something is wrong with the equation Joe.  Doesn't make sense that it would 
cause hum unless it was defective???  A .02uf 1600v film capacitor has the 
same properties a paper cap unless you are using a cap with lower voltage 
rating.  Just radios has .02uf 1600v orange drops which are film caps that 
will do the job.  Don't be mislead into thinking that a Ceramic disk will 
make a good replacement.  The capacity is extremely voltage variable in the 
class 2 and 3 ceramic disc caps --- great source of non-linearity.

Kindest regards Jim K9AXN

I am replacing a a paper tubular cap in a Johnson Ranger. It is .02 uf, 
1600v (c69). I had an orange drop film cap on hand but that will not work as 
it causes hum on the TX audio.
Anyone have a proper replacement or a source? Tried the usual (mouser, 
antique supply) with no luck.
