The Captain quipped: “RCA made a bunch of good parts back in the day, I miss them.”

The Captain said he used to take the common 16.5 vac/ 40 va. alarm transformer coupled
with a 723 and two of these transistors plus a few other parts to make a handy variable
experimenter power supply that could be adjusted from 5 to 15 volts and current limited at about 2 amps.
