substituting transistors

    I'm making an amateur radio project and I need help with identifying which
    types of transistors I can substitute for one in a 100mhz oscillator
    component. When I Google it, all I get are pages for selling catalogues of
    spec-data, and endless 'give-us-money' type webpages. I know, this question
    indicates a stunning lack of knowledge about even basic transistor
    knowledge, but I just cannot find the answer anywhere, short of paying a few
    hundred dollars for an entire catalogue or signing up for a 10 week course
    on transistors!
    The schematic says use a BC547, or 2N3904, or a 2N3563, and one schematic
    even says use any transistor with a cut-off point less than 300mhz.
    These are what I have on hand, which (if any, or all) can be used to
    substitute the ones I mentioned?

    mps6514

    8182n4410

    718mps6514

    pn2222a

    mpsao5

    2n4123

    2n4410

    2n4400

    mps6514

  2. Probably any of those.

    Go to Mouser or Digikey for free datasheets.

    Hey, you could always use a 3-pin socket and see which ones work best.

    (that's zero five, not oh five)
    http://www.google.com/search?q=2n4400 data sheet&btnG=Google Search

    Actually, just surf to http://www.google.com and put
    "xxxx data sheet" into the text box, without the quotes.

    Works for me. :)

    Cheers!

    Go to
    http://www.nteinc.com/
    Download QuickCROSS Version 11.0. Put in the 2N3904 to look up the NTE
    equivalent. You can then put any transistors in that you have on hand and
    see if they match the NTE number you just got. NTE replacement parts are
    readily available.
