1 answers Hi, im working on an VHT pitbull50 st rom -95. It has some noise issues. There are two of these things side bye side on the preamboard thats makes my scope go nuts when i poke them. And its only when im on the clean channel. So i guess its something about channelswitching?? Do you know which type I can replace them with?
