Product Details

CMNF-1500LF for transmitter/receiver coax lines up to 1500 watts PEP - 200 KHz - 7 MHz!

For coax feed lines with receive and transmit signals, you will love the small size, wide frequency range and excellent attenuation of common mode noise interference

- Reduces broadband common mode receiver noise* picked up on the outside of the antenna coax feed line.

- Wide frequency range works on all brands of radios and coax fed antennas from 200 KHz to 7 MHz

- Common mode noise rejection up to 20-38 DB (3-6 "S" units) depending on frequency

- Simple plug & play installation: plug a short jumper from the CMNF-1500LF to your amplifier output and plug the feed line (or a jumper to your antenna tuner) into the other SO-239 CMNF-1500LF input. Either connector can be input or output. Rated at 1500 watts PEP.

- will work with Bias-T antenna switches and will pass DC voltage from input to output with no attenuation

* not effective for noise from AC power lines or noise received directly by antenna

Installation Note: For best results, and to reduce co-interference between choked and unchoked coax feed lines with multiple antennas, ALL antenna feed lines entering the radio room need to have a separate feed line choke particularly if they are at a different frequency then HF, like VHF or UHF.

If you use a antenna switch for multiple antennas in the .2-7 MHz range, place the CMNF-1500LF in the "common" line of the antenna coax switch and the antenna tuner/amplifier.

IRON POWDER TOROID CORES-xx

Iron Cores 150x150 - Iron Powder CoresIron powder cores are more stable than ferrites and do not saturate as easily so they are best for tuned circuits, filters, and high power inductors. They come in different “Mixes” for use at different frequencies. For best “Q” use the Mix specified for your frequency.To find the number of turns to give the desired inductance for your coil use the formula below:

 

Turns = 100 x iron core formula 300x14 - Iron Powder Cores

To order specify core size and mix (e.g. T200A-2). Available in sizes that have µH per 100 turns shown in table.

All iron powder cores are special orders.  Please allow one week for shipment after order received.

The iron powder cores shown in the above tables are primarily used for either high power feed line chokes for common mode current reduction or for 4:1  and 9;1 very high power transmission line transformers.

For high power feed line chokes, choose the inside diameter of the iron powder core closest to the transmission line outside diameter and use 6-20 cores at the junction with the antenna feed.

For 4:1 (50/200 or 75/300 ohm) transmission line transformers in the range of 1.8-30 Mhz, select the size appropriate for the power level as follows:

T200A x 2 = 1.5KW

T300A x 2 = 2.5KW

T400A x 2 = 5KW

Use Mix 2 for all the above transmission line transformers.  Fully assembled and enclosed units are available for each of the power levels.  Click HERE for information.

4:1 transmission line transformers using iron powder cores are typically used for ladder line to 50 ohm coax connections

For .1 – 2 Mhz wide band transformers use Mix 26 which has a higher permeability and requires less turns to achieve a given inductance. Mix 2 has almost constant permeability from 1-30 Mhz.  Mix 26 has an initial permeability of 75 at .1 Mhz and gradually decreases to about 10 at 30 Mhz.  For high power AM broadcast range (.5-1.7 Mhz) transformer, use Mix 26 to reduce the turn count.

Minimum order for iron powder cores is $50  

Shipping on larger cores in quantity may be more than $10 – email/call for quote.
