Re: Bias Tee components

The bias tee works at the IF frequency, most likely 123 or 145 MHz, not at 2.4
GHz, so leaded capacitors will probably work fine, and a 1.5 inch piece of
wire will not be a significant inductor. To calculate the length of a 1/4 wave
section be sure to use the IF frequency also.
