Margina design? ;) Better said, very poor design.
Does not sound very good that same part, same lot code, sometimes work
here but not there, sometimes does not work at all... Extending it a
bit... sometimes will work at a given temperature, sometimes will not at
a given other.

The one in the VHF com had a different King part number to that in the ADF (MF direction finder). While trouble shooting we tried an ADF chip in a VHF (didn't have the VHF part in stock). It sort of worked but was slow to lock-up at the ends of the frequency range. Ordered some of the correct parts, both ADF and VHF. They all had the same manufacturer's part number and date code but different King numbers overstamped. Appaently the selected then at the factory for low noise (ADF) or wide pull-in (VHF).
