  1. I was at a hamfest looking for some mylar caps for a circuit that called for
    them. I got several opinions on how to tell one and finally gave up. Are
    there any sure fire ways to identiy a cap as mylar and why are they bettter
    than a silver mica or others. Does anyone have a short chart comparing the
    characteristics? How did we get by before mylar was used?
    tnx

    Micas are easy to spot, and ceramics are usually easy to spot.
    Before mylar, there were paper and cermaic capacitors (along with the
    micas).
