    Hi,
    I'm repairing my old Belcom VHF radio, but I cannot find the following
    transistors locally:
    (Mitsubishi)
    C1946A 7ZJ
    C2237 85E
    I don't want to buy 100, just one or two of each. If someone has a few of
    these spare or knows a supplier that will ship small quantities to Auckland,
    New Zealand, please email me direct. I can pay you in advance thru Paypal.

    Many thanks,
    Wout
     
  2. Don't know a source, but just want to mention that the Japanese
    generally leave the "2S" prefix off the parts - the transistors you
    want are probably 2SC1946A and 2SC2237 - the remaining numbers are
    probably date codes.

  3. You could try Maplin at www.maplin.co.uk They may well have an export
    business. Their catalog is massive.
    Remove "nospam" from return address.

    I order many hard-to-find semiconductors from Vancouver, BC's Pacific
    Semiconductors.
    http://www.pacificsemi.com/
    They do have a Canadian $25 minimum order + shipping (They use 1.25:1 ratio
    to the US Dollar which is fair) and ship really fast.

    To give you an example of the prices, the STK-4040V, 100W power amp audio
    bricks I just got were about $6 each, compared to the NTE replacement
    (which is an STK4040V with an NTE sticker stuck to it) at $US20.02 each
    from Mouser Electronics, my usual no-minimum-order electronics supplier:
    http://www.mouser.com
    I just order extras if I don't have other semis to buy from Pacific. I
    haven't found any place cheaper to buy old semiconductors than Pacific.
    So, instead of one at $20 + shipping/handling, I get 5 extras for about the
    same money...(c;

    Your C1946A is actually a Japanese 2SC1946A
    Your C2237 is actually a Japanese 2SC2237

    Pacific Semi has 2SC1946A for $US10 each
    2SC2237 shows 0 inventory for $US11.78 each so you'd have to wait for that
    one to be replenished. Mouser crosses 2SC2237 to an NTE344 at $29.73 and
    they have it in-stock. You can buy just one of anything at Mouser. They
    have no minimum order. I'd email Pac Semi and ask them how long you have
    to wait to get 2SC2237 for $US11.78. The two together would be near the
    $25 minimum and is STILL much cheaper for BOTH than for one from an NTE
    supplier shipping you the same parts. Pacific Semi is a great place to buy
    semiconductors of any kind.

    Thank you Canada!!

    Hope this helps you find your parts.....

    Thanks Steve,
    I found a source for one of them and I was put onto an ex repair man for the
    other one. I'm waiting for his reply. I keep my fingers crossed.
    Thanks for your kind offer to supply specs. If I'm not getting any further
    I'll be in touch.
