Re: Broadcast band Interference Filter for Cricket 80A

Chip Stratton AE5KA
 

My testing of the QRPme BCI filter with a 50 ohm termination on one end, and my AA-230 antenna analyzer on the other end, revealed an SWR of 1.04 at 3580 kHz, vs 1.01 with the 50 ohm termination without the BCI filter.

I don't recall my analyzer  measurements at BCB frequencies, only that attenuation increased rapidly below the 80m band.

I also found no significant effect on the 800 mW output power of my Cricket 80a.when the BCI was in circuit, my Elecraft W1 wattmeter 0.8 watt LED remained lit either way.

I'm certainly not trying to push any vendor's BCI filter - the circuit is easily duplicated and there is nothing special about QRPme's implementation, but it does work.

Curt, Bryan and All,

Attached a drawing comparing two HP filters.  One that Bryan suggested and one that was worked up using Elsie.  Compare the characteristics.  If you can get parts as close as possible to the Elsie model,  I think the transmission loss will be much less than Bryan found.  Mainly because the impedance and RL are much better.

Fascinating project!

I've seen this station pop up on the FT8 screen a couple of times but not strong enough for a QSO. This explains why the swarm of callers.

Will definitely keep on my alert list.
