Re: Bias help???
Hi guys,  
Thanks for the reply.  
I pulled a leg of the 2.2k resistor and subbed in a 50k pot. I started at 2.2k and slowly increased the value up to 48.7k value of the pot and there was no change in the bias current. I then went the other way and again no change. I'm totally baffled on this.

Thanks for any suggestions. Jerry
