Subject: Resistor Noise at the 40m 
As Stefan points out in his recent ISS ilog entries at LLO, Daniel Sigg recently wrote a
recommendation memo on resistor and capacitor
choices: T070016.

While working on the PMC I have had to use leaded resistors and wondered about the noise. As it turns
out we have the RN series of 1/4 W resistors from Stackpole Electronics. The RN series are
metal film resistors (datasheet attached); metal film is what Sigg recommends for lowest flicker
noise.

So we are OK for using the Stackpole 1/4 W leaded resistors in low noise circuits.
