This 0.004uF 3500V cap spilled its innards after what I believe was a nearby lightning strike. Nothing direct, but close enough to take this and several transmitter components out. All that's left to replace is the cap.



I checked eBay and Fair Radio. Any other suggestions?

0.003 or 0.004uF will work since I can change taps on the inductor to accommodate some variation.

Many thanks in advance!

Also, it doesn't have to be an Aerovox. I'm temporarily using one made by Sangamo.
