- Uses proprietary Multi-Mix(TM) technology for maximum choking (up to 5K ohm) and maximum bandwidth

- 3 KW PEP, 50 ohm SO-239 connectors In dual screw terminal output for ladder line, 1-61 MHz

- Up to -48dB common mode suppression solves tough RFI issues

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

- 2-5 times more choking resistance, wider bandwidth and higher power then competing filters

- great replacement choke for G5RV/ZS6BKW antennas or as a 1:1 ladder line to coax interface for Flagpole OCF type antennas with high common mode choking to isolate the coax braid from becoming part of the antenna.

- Available with ground lug/internal static bleeder option

- Excellent replacement for Hygain BN4000D balun used on beam antennas

MAXI-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 or at a ladder line to coax junction, like a G5RV antenna.

Note: Color may be white or black depending on on inventory at time of order. Also available with SO-239 in/Out (MC-1-3000) or with static bleeder/ground MC-1-3000GB.
