switch, not sure how well they worked. I was told that all 1N400x
series were not internal the same basic design. (?)
Since this is not a data sheet application for the diode, I wonder if
anyone on the list has experience using the 1N4004 or 1N4007 in a PIN

for a bunch of info.

The Elecraft K2 uses 1N4007’s for TR switching on the RF board.
Go to the Elecraft site. Select Manuals and Downloads. Select the K2 Appendix B (schematics and block diagram).
