Re: AMSAT-BB Digest, Vol 2, Issue 504



Hi Richard,
A quarter wave stub tuned to 2 meters will be 3/4 wave at
70 cm.
Therefor it will reject 70 cm as well.
Greetings from Copenhagen.

close to the input of the rig). A little bit tricky to tune (fabricate it
long and snip tiny bits of it off until you get maximum attenuation).
