Jon card: i have a delta forve that has two of the old 1969 finals in it its only
pushing 8 swinging too 10 where do i go about i getting two of the old ones?
weazle66: @urbex2007 There are many variations out there, you have to remember that
there are lots of different types of transistor which use the same package
style so it's just a matter of re-marking the parts to fool people that
they are buying something else. In some cases they could be just cheap
MOSFET's which are re-marked.
weazle66: @CHEVELLE69350 According to the circuit diagram for your 44V it should use
a 2SC2166 driver and a 2SC1969 final.
srebalov: An Other FAKE !!! for much Money!!!!
thebakerman1: Your video's are excellent my friend. I thoroughly enjoy every single one
I've seen so far. I have a 2510 and your illustrations have been extremely
helpful to me and have been highly instrumental in helping me understand
this old rig! Thank you for everything you do here :)
steve smith: @weazle66 Thanks!!!!!
34ab138: those fakes were better than some which i first tried about 3 years ago.
they blew after about 5 seconds and burnt the coils out with them.
9ff70f96: Off-topic, but I just substituted a 2SC2166 for a 2SC1969 I had lying
around as the driver in a PC999 President Grant. Am I mental? Had to swap
out VR11 (BIAS pot) for a 5K to allow me to dial in 50mA, but other than
that, changed nothing, and it looks to be working well. I know virtually
nothing about electronics, so really have no clue whether if this is insane
or not. I'm hoping it'll just prove to be a very OTT driver, barely ticking
over comparred to a more typical load... Any opinions?
weazle66: @JettaJ1 Nice comment! but i am not stupid enough to buy a fake - these
were supplied to me by others who for some reason thought they could buy a
2SC1969 for $1.50 each - which would be nice if they worked but i know you
can't buy a working one for that price.
Lee Brooker: Nice vid on the fake.What garbage eh? Lol! Keep up the great vids.Thanks :)
steve smith: I have a galaxy 44v. It has 2 c1969 finals in it and it doesn't transmit.
Are they both the same? Is the pre driver and the final soppose to have the
Juan Carlos Berberena Gonzalez: Well, I have the same problem, I bought a lot of 100 2SC2069 from China to
MAXSOURCE CO. and work well only in low frequency, look like more and audio
transistor than a RF transistor.The price was US$0.55 each but I think they
sent to me other with this number, jejejejejejeje I failed, I lost my
money, it's a big mistake Beware with the Chinese business
weazle66: What would i do? - throw them in the bin, there is not much you can do
except learn from your experience. I have been warning about fakes for
years and some people take note but most don't, Mitsubishi stopped making
the 2SC1969 and many other transistors in 2003 so originals are now hard to
come by but there are a few good replacements out there if you know what to
Brett Moyer: So where can I get a good replacement for the 2sc1969 like the CB-20W you
mentioned here in the US? Found one on ebay for $30
J1: RUBBISH final someone should kick that wankers ass that sold you that junk
kg6je: Hi. I was bitten by the temptation of getting a" BARGAIN" and purchased 5
of these fake 2sc1969 transistors for $28, complete with Mitsubishi logo. I
got the whopping Watt and a half standard output that you have found. I let
the ebay seller know that I caught him selling counterfeit parts. He got
back to acting like it was no big deal, it must have been a shipping error,
send them back for a refund. That is not enough! He expressed no shock
about me calling him on the fakes. What would you do?
J1: @weazle66 as the saying goes, YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR. and here is an
example your video:) i feel bad for the mates that bought that transistor
however iv only been in the radio for a year and a half and i know the
sc1969 is RARE to find at-least working anyways hihi
