OK Andy they are the normal doorknob types, the ones I am looking at are made of a white ceramic case and are nitrogen filled with bolts at either end. There are 2 types available in 2000pf 2kv and 16kv. They are about 100mm long. They are available via ebay.

Hello Dave, for info :
I did not tried the teflon models, but in the years 2002 I had an home made ampli on 2200m band, with 2 x 3-500Z tubes, also 800 W output.
I used Russian doorknob capacitors types K15U-2 and KVI-3 without any problem. They are still avaible on the UR4LL surplus parts site

Has anybody tried using the Russian teflon doorknob capacitors for tuned circuits on 137 khz? I have seen some rated at 2000pf at 16kv which will give me the 8000pf I require to tune the loop. So far most caps get hot or self destruct when getting to 1kw, only 2/3 power. Current at 800 w is about 20 amps. Thanks Dave
