After a new order of BC 337-40 of Conrad, I got two sets of about 50 trannies (337 and 327) within hfe of 450 to 470.

Lucky me!!

May I match the groups even closer then?

-Or is that to much?

No, that match is really good. Maybe you got the Diotecs. They proved to be well matched several times now.

I am starting a new tread on the Swap forums

This should free up the builder tread for trouble shooting and builds tips

In the meantime

I have started to measure the BCXXX-40 I got with goodies bags (Paradise GB)

I tried the Atlas unit again and first test on a sample measure first test Hfe 477 a second test few seconds later measure Hfe 481 is not a big difference considering the 10% tolerance recommended
Measuring with the circuit published by Hesener give me an Hfe of 493 and repeating this give me exactly the same results
I like to test using Hesener circuit as I can see what is happening especially with the problems arising from touching the transistors

Considering that to build this circuit is really inexpensive I am going to stick with it.

The testing is a very momentary value, not only your fingerheat, but allso the test itself raises the temp. of the transistor, and so with the hfe value. I connect the tester, and let the value find rest before i take note of it

That is a good way of doing it, however time/consuming. You could also take the first stable reading and accept a little bit of variability....

Paradise BCXXX-40

PS I am not after fame or profits and my R2 is fine and got plenty to build R3 so if you have constructive coments great if not "have a nice day" or the more apropiate Queen English translation for it

I am going to populate the R3 boards with 5XX for current sources (done the same for R2 after all) and with the highets matched Hfe I got for the Imputs.
No not today but eventualy
If those oscillate I may need hesener help (Seepost 567) so I may have to volunteer as volunteer N1 but don't think so...

I use a rarely mentioned invention, called a powersupply for short PSU, to solve that problem.
