Hi Allison,
So it sounds like you found the 2n3866 superior to the 2n2222a  at some point in the chain. To avoid having to repeat what you have already tried could you share with us at which point in the chain, i.e. driver, predriver & did you use one or two or four? 2n3866’s are pretty pricey but not unobtainium from a reliable source. And do tnis superiority apply to all bands or just to the higher frequencies?

If this is obvious or you have already stated it, I apologize for having missed it (and it’s obviously not obvious to me...) please do not give up, your opinions knowledge and findings are well respected here

and elsewhere.

Thanks. And thank you for your patience.
