Club Band Pass Filters Project
The W6SFM and it's members viewed the build of a series of Band Pass Filters to be used at our
next Field Day operations. These band pass filters will be used to keep strong RF signals
caused by close proximity transmissions from 'blocking' one receivers front end as the other
station is operating on another band. If you're interested in reading about the design and
construction of these filters please click HERE for all the information.
