I found 4 of these in a box. I can't seem to find much on them. Perhaps 6kv at 1 amp?

The mailing label on the box says they were sent from

Frank P. Fix K2AW
"Silicon Alley"
and an address in Westbury NY.

Overall measurements are 3/4" x 3/4" x 2" with two leads and a diode symbol marked on them for polarity.

Anyone know specifications and/or what they are worth? Looks like the makings of a nice full wave bridge.

Did you buy some in the past? I'll probably sell these, but I have no idea what they used to cost. Do you recall?

As I recall they were $10 each.  You might contact Frank K2AW if he's still around...he's the one who had them made and sold them for decades.

I think old Frank is retired now.  As I recall he was looking to sell out about 3 or 4 years ago.

When I built my homebrew 2X 3-500Z amplifier I built the HV power supply using individual diodes, equalizing resistors and capacitors.  The board and component count was quite large.

I replaced whole board with two of the K2AW rectifier "blocks."  You can't beat 'em!  I think RF Parts sells a similar product for like $75 each!

I was told by Frank not to solder directly to the tags but to use the automotive type connectors - we call them 'Lucar' because they originally came from Lucas, but I know what a poor reputation Lucas automotive electrics have in the US!

Frank, K2AW, is now a silent key.
