I'm in the middle of my SOHA II build and things are humming along. However, I have a question about resistor R3P. It is spec'd as an 8.2Ohm 3W 5% metal oxide resistor. However, I mistakenly purchased a 10Ohm 3W 5% metal oxide. (It actually reads as 10.2Ohm on the DMM.) Is it that critical that an 8.2Ohm resistor be used in this spot or would I be ok with the 10? Just wondering if this should be a concern (will 2Ohms make any difference in this spot?) and whether or not I need to put in an order to Mouser for the exact value.
