K9DP QRP Bandpass Filter
- Designed to reject interference from other near by stations operating on different bands.
- Lightweight and portable design, only 3.4 inches (85mm) in length and weighing just 23 grams. Perfect for Parks on the Air (POTA), Summits on the Air (SOTA) and Field Day.
- Tested up to 20 watts with SSB, CW and digital FT8.
- High quality C0G (NP0) capacitors and Micrometals toroids.
These filters have a 50Ω impedance and are symmetrical, so it's not important which end is the input or output.
Caution: High SWR can damage the filter. The filter should be inserted inline between the transceiver and tuner, rather than between the tuner and antenna. If your radio has an internal tuner, be sure to use a resonant antenna or an antenna with a matching circuit, such as an EFHW (end fed half wave), in combination with the filter.
If you're interested in kit versions please let me know. (Building is a little more complicated than my BCI kits as it requires tuning with a VNA for best performance.)
