Re: Obsolete Transistor Needed



For me it is a shipping problem...I purchased a "tape recorder" from the UK
for $20 USD and post cost me $50 USD to get it across the pond...

Now I'm not talking about a heavy package...however, if it was not sent as a
gift, there also would have been many customs forms to fill out as British
electronics MUST be better than our electronics, because WE want to make
sure they NEED to be imported to the USA and that they are not already
available to be purchased here....

As a former member of the Steel and Iron industry, it seems the same the
same situation exists there.

And that's the truth....  ;-)
