Re: Tek 547 A Sweep display during retrace


The 2N5401 might still be fast enough. I suggested it and the BC556
because they are relatively common. The KSA992 is the best of the
commonly available and inexpensive options that I found.

I was not able to find any detailed specifications on the original
2N2207 to make a better comparison between it and modern parts. The
low voltage output capacitance is a start but not sufficient.

I think KSA992 is a better bet with 3pf max.

2N5401 is 6pf vs 2.3 . It will be much slower in this application.
