Amen!Consider the resistance of a capacitor is a big deal for a part used in this spot. Physically-large capacitors are better. More metal in the bigger cap means lower resistance, means less likely to burn up from high RF current.
If the circuit calls for 150 pf (for example) using three 50pf caps in parallel will split the current three ways, and reduce the heating of each cap.
Let your finger be your guide, if you don't have a fancy IR thermometer. A cap that gets too hot to touch will have a short service life.
Good luck trying to get a datasheet for the C version. I went to their website and couldn’t find one. As to the regular HG 2879, they basically copied the Toshiba specs. Yet it is a different animal.
There is but it never matches real world especialy with chinessium parts with fake data sheets and specification printed on parts that never match what you actual get. Arco's are your friend!Any math to use to figure input and output capacitances when rebuilding/repairing?
