Q good evening some years ago i bought from you a couple of am/fm tuning capacitors (part number 171028) you appear not to sell them any longer but do you still have their specification sheet?
A Hi Jean-pierre, thank you for your question. We only have the data sheet for 12-0255 as a LA-201N-L10, no information for a 171028 I'm afraid.

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.
