C2 Capacitor value?

C2 Capacitor value?

Postby damdim » Sun Mar 03, 2019 9:18 am

Hi. I have just assembled a 15001K, but in the kit instead of a 330pF capacitor I got a 33pF one. Instead of "331" it is marked "330".
The test voltages are OK and the test waveform is sharp. Is the manual correct or is the one I got correct? And if it's not, should I replace it with a 330pF capacitor?

Here are two common ways capacitors values can be marked, EIA and ICE
In EIA 330 pF would be 331
In ICE 330 pF would be 330p

It has an underlined 330 only, but I measured it and it's 0.32nF, so I guess it's the correct value. Thank you for your help.
