Just when I though I had it.
If 2/.08 is 25R
why isn't 6/.08 = 75R (accepting that I wrote .8 in error)
...and if it IS 75R the Power Rating works out at .48W (again 'I think') so not sure if my current stash of resistors are up to it.
Yes the current you want in the collector is the current in the base time the gain of the transistor. If you don't know the gain then guess at say 50, if it is an under estimate it doesn't matter.
Yep, that's it. I've gone. :o Guess I have lots more reading to do :-[
As ever, many thanks for your assistance GM
