Diode - 1N34A Germanium, low leakage
The 1N34A Germanium diode is an old standby in electronics. Widely used for detecting the rectifying efficiency or for switching on a radio, TV or stereo etc.
- Lower leakage current
- Flat junction capacitance
- High mechanical strength
- AM/FM detectors
- Ratio detectors
- FM discriminators
- TV audio detectors
- RF input proves
- TV video detectors
Note: This is a suplus item. Due to the age of the components, the leads will have varying amounts of oxidation which may need to be removed.

1 answers HI, Is this a 'real' 1N34A and not a Schottky or something else. Reason I ask is there are a lot of fakes out there in the marketplace. Thanks Phil (KO6BB)

Hi, this is a genuine 1N34A and not a Schottky diode. We do not and will not sell fake parts in any form.
I've dealt with antique electronic supply company many times over the years, excellent products, great prices at second to none customer service. Thank you for all you do
Just what I needed
Wow! Just like my crystal radio of my youth. This diode worked
great in the radio circuit and it sure took me back! Great product and I'm happy I coud find this item on your online store. Thanks!
