Bob, KE6F, has for several years now been supplying experimenters with components, essentially free of charge.   The only cost to the user has been for postage.    This started with a huge supply of BF998 FETs.   These are dual gate, N-channel
MOSFETs.  Although they are SMT parts, they are very easy to use, even in a breadboard (no printed board) environment.   I used one of these MOSFETs in a 6 meter low noise amplifier that is on my web site. (Click here to read the short paper.)   Some additional parts were given away to our homebrewer community, including some interesting power MOSFETs and quite a variety of SMT parts.  

Bob continues to supply us with good parts.   There are two offers:

1)    The BF998
MOSFETs are still available.   To get what Bob calls as "a pinch" of these parts, send Bob a #10 standard business size, self addressed envelope that has two "Forever" stamps.   Please do not send money or loose stamps.

2)    The second option is a "grab bag."   For this, send Bob a 10 x 15 inch shipping envelope, self addressed, with $4 of attached postage.    Please, no cash or loose stamps.     This envelope will include that pinch of BF998 FETs, plus a bunch of other goodies.    But here's a change from the past.   Bob wants to get away from dealing with specific parts, so this offer is for a true grab bag.   I can't tell you what you will get, but suspect that it will be spectacular.  

The BF998 MOSFETs are not some obscure junker parts from the past, but are parts that are still available in the Mouser and  Digi-Key catalogs.   That said, they may not last forever, for they are no longer recommended for use in new designs.   The feedback that I've had over the last several years is that these are great parts.


Again, Bob emphasizes:    DO NOT SEND MONEY or LOOSE STAMPS.

The above SASE conditions apply to experimenters in the USA.    If you are elsewhere, please contact Bob for details.

The address for the parts is

Many thanks Bob for your continued generosity.
