Greetings all,

This is a little off topic I know, but I have been compiling a parts list to build the WA2EBY amplifier and was at about $12 until I started to add the mica capacitors. About $4 a pop!! That would be about $70 

Are there any reasonable modern replacements for mica capacitors? I'm assuming that SWR tolerances are what demand the 500V rating?

Here's a link to the old QST article.
