    I’m building a SWAW using the hand etched v2 PCB.

    I have some of the parts to the kit, but a few are missing and will need to be ordered. Before I do that, I’m wondering about a few sus for parts I have on hand.

    On parts list it has listed D1, D2 as 1N4148, but D6 is listed as 1N34. But the packaged parts have all three diodes using 1N4148. Can I use one of these for D6 or do I need to order a 1N34 ?

    For C8, C9 and C11 listed on parts list using 1uf caps.  I only have two green ones in kit’s part bag, but found a black 1uf in my spare parts bin. Is it ok to use it for C11 ?

    Thanks

    You need a germanium diode at least that has the proper forward voltage as a 1N34A

    I sell D9E in my shop but note they are Russian so all Russian germanium diodes have a reverse orientation to 1N34A.

    As for capacitors as long as you are not changing the value and that they fit properly that is not an issue.

    Barry,

    I have some of these that I ordered from you for my last project. Will these work?
    DIODE 1N5817 1.0A SCHOTTKY

    I have never tried anything but the called for part.

    You may certainly give it a try.
