[OT} Peak DCA55 & Germanium


Tim Phillips
 

My Peak DCA55 often misidentifies some Germanium transistors as BiColor
LEDs.
In particular those such as 2N2209 with TO7 bases. (e-b-Case-c; the Case
lead has been clipped). Is this possibly Tin-Whisker or something about the
DCA55? My Chinese component analyser just says 'unknown component' (I'm
going through my collection of 1S1s and 3T77s)
