    With 4 bands, it is gold.

    OK, but I still have a 3 band resistor that goes between 1-9.9Ω. Gold is the 3rd band.

    red,red gold, gold is 2.2 ohm, 5%

    red,red, gold, blank is 2.2ohm, 20% Unfortunately, the blank band is hard to see. :D

    Wikipedia has a good article and table for "resistor color code"

    I don't even pay attention to the tolerance band anymore, 5% is my standard part. But my original comment, the AAC chart not including these values, is what started this.

    :rolleyes:

    Don't you think the AAC book reference page should have this information? :D

    Just thinking this could use some review. In other words, bump.

    OK, I stand corrected. Looks like it has been tweaked, and I missed it.
