Re: Broadcast band Interference Filter for Cricket 80A

Have read notes from various ops experiencing BCI with the Cricket, and recall there being similar issues with other simple rigs like the Rockmite and Pixies of various flavors.  Seem to recall that the crystal on the RM input was originally to deal with BCI not adequately suppressed by LC network.

I personally have very minor issues with BCI despite living near a large city with many AM broadcast stations.  Use a tuner and balanced antennas.  Can someone describe the station attributes that make BCI more of a problem with DC receivers?
