Useful little MW tuning capacitor

This is pretty much the go-to part if you're making a medium wave receiver, low power antenna matching unit or any other application that calls for a no-nonsense variable capacitor. One really useful feature of this type is the relatively long control shaft, which is a good match for several types of push-on knob.
