    So a 4 band resistor (?) Gold, Red, Blk, Red.

    Gold first band (?) 5% tolerance, Red 2 Black 0 = 20 X 100 = 2000 Ohms or 2K Ohms?

    Been so long I had to use a resistor calculator.........think it is right.

    It’s right. The only reason I know that one is that I used rbem
    daily for 13 years. That’s the end of line resistor required for Honeywell alarm panels.

    I got lazy and it's hard to see the bands, so I use a digital multimeter and it should be within tolerance of what what I'm looking for in a bag of new parts to build a kit. 

    Course that won't help if after you lift a leg and slap a meter across it trying to see if it's bad if you don't know what the value is supposed be. 

    Good things about resistors like that is a lot of times they give visual indications they are bad, like burnt looking or bubbly on the surface. Not always, but sure a good indicator of where to start looking and the try and determine what caused them to burn out.

    I NEVER attempt to figure out the
    code. Been burned too many times. Years ago when I “knew” how to do it, and recently when I used an online calculator. Which works great, if you can actually see the correct color.....

    So, Mr Fluke tells me what I need to know.

    And I always kept cab fare in my right shoe, too. That way I didn't get arrested! :D
