The 1uF/16V capacitors are only used at a few volts so only their value is important. Capacitors with a higher voltage rating will work the same but might be bigger. 1uF/25V or 1uF/35V might be small enough to fit on ther pcb.

You are using the pcb, aren't you? This circuit works at around 100MHz and won't work on a breadboard.

Are u kidding about the 1uf 16V electrolytic cap !  :)
Those can be bought just about anywhere. They can be bought online, and even at Radioshack, "that usually sucks"
Here's the site for Radioshack :

Long URL...

BTW, Where r u from?
and what does the W mean after 1

yes Im using the pcb.  Im using batchpcb.com.  Ive used them before, much better pricing than advanced circuits.  and Ive looked on mouser and digikey for a 1uf 16v radial electrolytic capacitor and i haven't found them.  I even looked under tantalum but the only ones they have are non stocked and have outrageous mins.

Even EBAY sells Capacitors that will do the job.
