Re: What’s actually better?

The original BITX20 design used 2N2222a devices. Then we found that
many of these devices were inferior (if a floor sweeping tested as NPN, it
was labeled a 2N222a and marketed as such) and were being sold through
popular retail outlets.
That situation resulted in a change from 2N2222a (plastic devices) to 2N3904,
also plastic devices, that seemed to be more reliable and within specifications.
This was in the era when BITX transceivers were built using Ugly Construction
methods with parts from junk boxes and from local retailers.
