<< The current Digi-Key catalog lists a pair of dielectric filters by Toko 
 2450 MHZ, with a plus or minus 50 MHZ passband.  This puts it right on 2400 
 MHZ at the lower limit, with response to 2500 MHZ -- the low side LO and 
 image will be way down through one of these.  The 2 pole filter measures .5" 
 X .5" X .2" and is small enough to easily replace the stripline filter in 
 AIDC 3733 and most other downconverters.
 A dielectric filter uses a ceramic dielectric that has been plated to form a 
 small internal cavity/tuned line and they are not readily tunable.  I 
 tried them yet, I am just going by the spec's.
 The Digi-Key part numbers are:
 2 POLE FILTER --- TKS 2610CT-ND @ $13.92 each.
 3 POLE FILTER --- TKS 2618CT-ND @ $20.88 each.

Wow that's some price Bob. Have a look at the type listed below and see if 
there's much difference. I buy these in 100 offs and pass on the saving. I 
can confirm that they work very well at 2400 and have a low insetion loss.

www.g0mrf.freeserve.co.uk/kits.htm.   2 pole filter  TDF2A -2450-10  $ 6.00
As used in the Drake modification.

But sadly out of stock for 1 month which means I'll miss the opportunity of 
bringing some to Dayton in a couple of weeks.

BTW.  I discovered a while back that here in Europe, the new Third Generation 
mobile phone system will have an allocation at the image frequency of a 
typical 2.4GHz converter.  (2400 - 288MHz) We may all be adding extra filters 
over here soon.
