Standard Resistor Color Code and Resistors Used In Sparton Radio Receiving Sets and Sparton Ensembles  
STANDARD RESISTOR COLOR CODE  sistor, and the second figure of resistance value by the color of the tip of the resistor. The number of ciphers following the second figure is determined by the color of the dot or stripes in the center of the body of the resistor. For example, a 20,000 ohm resistor has a red body, black tip, with orange dot or orange stripe. A 2,200 ohm resistor would be red body, with red tip and red dot, or red stripe, and as all colors are the same, it would be a single color resistor.
