Re: 160m filter

Dale Parfitt

We are on the same page Bill. The bitx finals are Push pull so that helps us with the 3rd 160M harmonic= 5.4- 6MHz. and up. That means a low order 160M LP elliptic filter with a zero in the 3.6-4MHz spectrum should do it. Time to spend some time in Gensys simulation/synthesis and get the spectrum analyzer on the uBitx unless someone else has already done the SA work.

That's how it looks to me Dale. An 80 meter low pass filter isn't
helping much with the 160 meter band until we get to that third harmonic
and higher. An external filter also helps on receive :)

guess that if one starts at 80M and tunes down to 160M, then the 80M LPF
is still in the circuit?*
