I'm making an amateur radio project and I need help with identifying which
types of transistors I can substitute for one in a 100mhz oscillator
component. When I Google it, all I get are pages for selling catalogues of
spec-data, and endless 'give-us-money' type webpages. I know, this question
indicates a stunning lack of knowledge about even basic transistor
knowledge, but I just cannot find the answer anywhere, short of paying a few
hundred dollars for an entire catalogue or signing up for a 10 week course
on transistors!
The schematic says use a BC547, or 2N3904, or a 2N3563, and one schematic
even says use any transistor with a cut-off point less than 300mhz.
These are what I have on hand, which (if any, or all) can be used to
substitute the ones I mentioned?

Probably any of those.

Go to Mouser or Digikey for free datasheets.

Hey, you could always use a 3-pin socket and see which ones work best.

Actually, just surf to http://www.google.com and put
"xxxx data sheet" into the text box, without the quotes.

Works for me. :-)

Go to
http://www.nteinc.com/
Download QuickCROSS Version 11.0. Put in the 2N3904 to look up the NTE
equivalent. You can then put any transistors in that you have on hand and
see if they match the NTE number you just got. NTE replacement parts are
readily available.
