Does anyone know what can substitute for the 40673? Preferably through hole mount.

I Bet Zack knows.

Thanks

You might also try any dual gate MOSFET you have on hand--for the typical HF application that appeared in amateur literature, the only significant difference I can think of are the types with unprotected gates that require more care in installation--they are easily blown out by electrostatic discharge.

Hi Jerry,

The general issue of the availability of dual gate MOSFETs is also discussed a bit
in Experimental Methods in RF Design. on p. 5.12.

If this is for a repair, there is typically NOS to be had on eBay. Search under
"40673 mosfet". Problem is the price plus shipping is kind of high typically.
