Simple band pass filter for 23cms

A nice simple to construct design by GM8OTI http://www.marwynandjohn.org.uk/GM8OTI/proj23cmBPF/proj23cmBPF.html


Example made by M0YDH (using capacitors found in the Finningley ARS scrap heap during CAT17!). Thanks to John Cooke GM8OTI for the drawing where dimensions in blue are the result of scaling. Elements are brass rods Ø3mm x 19 long off inside face.
