RF isn't enough of a unit to look for a specific cap. Here are some general suppliers I've used at one point or another:

www.mouser.com
www.jameco.com
www.newark.com

And before any body else asks, I'll pretend to be the obnoxious Radios Shack guy: "What are you building?"

My favorite RS line when buying a battery is "Whats your Name, Address and Phone Number, please?"

Actual scenario & dialog:

Me: (Walking in with 3 vacuum tubes in hand) "Do you folks have a tube tester?"

RS Employee: "For what?"

Me: "Uh... to test these." (thinking... 'We have a winner!')

RSE: "What are they?"

Me: (starting to get perturberd) "Vacuum tubes."

RSE: "For what?"

Me: (wise asp is now surfacing) "They're from a WMD, a TND to be precise."

RSE: (a mask of confusion envelopes his face) "Huh?"

Me: (busting a gut to keep a straight face) " A Thermo-Nuclear Device. Ya know an atom bomb!"

RSE: "Well, um... what do they do?"

Me (now thoroughly exasperated) "Nevermind, I doubt you'd understand."

Me: (walked out, never to retun)

I don't think to this day its ever registered with that RSE what that conversation was about.

I walked into RS asking if they have Tube sockets
(I have a 12AU7 socket that's dying).
response from the pimply HS kid behind the counter: What's a tube?

pathetic.

It's funny because it's true. Sadly true.

If people think it's important to patronize a good LBS, it's doubly important to patronize a good LES(?).

Do you mean a 5-150 µF Cap for RF use? Djbrod gave you the right answer since your not close to my cellar.

Stacey that was funny - shows my age right. I still miss Hollow State Devices.

I could hazard a guess, I hope it works out for him.
