Re: Toroidal Cores at 436MHz

Hi Mike,

I have used the Amidon FT-50-68 cores, u=10, .5" diameter.
at 435 MHz. You can't really use much higher u cores or
the losses get too high. I used 4 of them for a BALUN and
tested it at 50 watts key down for 1 minute with no ill effects.
This BALUN has been in use for several years now on one
of my satellite antennas. For more power, you might want
to use larger cores.
