Extreme power 2m 5000W BandPass Filter
After any 2m linear amplifier, it is very important to put bandpass filter to clean harmonics. Does not matter if you use one or two RF Power LDMOS transistors like Freescale MRFE6VP61K25H Ampleon ART1K6FH or the latest NXP MRFX1K80H this 2m 5000W BandPass Filter will do the job.
High power capability, extremely low insertion Loss of just 0.078dB, and high SWR handling will enable safe operation in any normal conditions.
Although the intention of this filter is to be used as a transmitting filter, the design allows also it to be used as receiving filter before wideband LNA to protect sensitive devices from strong out-of-band signals.
Intended to be used also with linear amplifiers with 8877, GS35, GS31, GU78, or GU84 as well as with other tubes or RF Power LDMOS transistors.
This Bandpass filter will suppress any signals from HF 1.8 – 28 MHz stations, 50-54 MHz, and 70cm – 432 MHz to pass to the preamplifier or transceiver.
The filter will reduce TVI problems or your problem with neighbors with strong RFI from HF, 6m, or 70cm transmitters.
