    Man those arduino’s are everywhere ;)

  2. Alex says:

    Please, give me contact this indian guy

  3. this is quite an old HF transistor :)

    or maybe a bad clone, some of these transistors found in weird pieces will never amplify any signal, but they’re damn good as heaters!

    Are you guys heading to Delhi too?

  5. Ian says:

    Not going to Delhi this time but maybe in the future.

    @openmakersdaily because the manufacturers mark denotes it as a military part manufactured probably in Bangalore itself. Very interesting ceramic and gold package. The other end is threaded like a screw.
