- Uses proprietary Multi-Turn ferrite technology for maximum choking (up to -38 dB common mode noise rejection) and maximum bandwidth

- 500 Watts PEP, 50 ohm SO-239 connectors In/Out, 1-61 MHz (usable to 100 MHz) - AKA 1:1 UNUN

- Works for all coax fed antennas from 1.8-61 MHz (160-6 meters) - excellent for multi-band beams, verticals, dipoles, magnetic loops and highly unbalanced off center fed antennas.

- 2-5 times more common mode noise rejection, wider bandwidth and higher power then competing isolators

- Available standard with SO-239 in/out connectors or optional BNC or N in/out connectors

MINI-CHOKER feed line chokes are used to suppress common mode current carried on the outside of the coax braid which is often responsible for receiver noise and RFI in the receiver/transmitter. These chokes are very useful for suppressing RFI common mode current at the antenna feed point, at 1/2 wavelength intervals along the coax feed line and also at the entrance to the radio station.

This choke is available with a SO-239 input/output and ground/static bleeder stud (optional) for attachment to a ground rod. Use an isolator every 1/2 wavelength for the antenna operating frequency (include velocity factor in calculation). Use the ground lug option for long coax antenna feed lines (over 1/2 wavelength at the operating frequency of any antenna system in the near field of the coax).

For Higher Power needs use our MAXI-CHOKER 3KW version part# MC-1-3000 or 5KW version MC-1-5000.
