Zero Ohm Resistors — Again

When I had a laugh about zero Ohm resistors back in 2013, I wrote that I only would want to buy them if they had a tolerance of 1%. A silly request, of course, as 1% of zero is still zero.

I was pretty sure such resistors didn’t exist, but it could be that I was wrong.

Alex PA1SBM, a good friend of mine, visited the latest hamfest and came back with a truckload full of resistors, all of them with a tolerance of 1%. This is what he discovered in the package and subsequently posted on his blog:


It could be that he tricked me with Photoshop, but on-air he keeps denying that with a voice resembling Bill Clinton when he was first asked about Monica Lewinsky. I’m afraid a house call is in order.
