TPD BF245 as substitute for a MPF102?
Can I use a BF245 as a substitute for a MPF102? This transistors are used in a preamplifier, but MPF102's are hard to get, so the shop assistent gave me those BF245. I looked to and compared those two types, and they have some differences, so I don't know if I could use them.

Where are you located?  
If you are near one, I've seen MPF102's in  
most Radio Shack stores...
