Purpose

The RFI kit is designed to be installed on your radio transceiver to reduce Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) caused by common mode current on the outside of the coax braid at the output of your radio and on the DC power supply cable.

This kit will help reduce or eliminate:

1. “Hot mic” RFI caused by poor grounding of antennas or common mode currents from linear amps feeding unbalanced (coax fed) antennas without baluns/line isolators.

2. RFI to neighbor’s electronic devices including audio/video systems, computers, telephones, garage door openers, etc.

3. RFI to your other radios, audio/video systems, computers, telephones, etc.

A side benefit is a reduction in noise floor in your receiver depending on the amount of noise being introduced by common mode currents (which are blocked/reduced by the chokes in this kit).

These chokes use a special mix of ferrite core material that is effective in suppressing radio frequency interference from Ham Radio amplifiers.

The split beads beads are easy to use, don’t require modification of the protected equipment and work in almost all cases, even when plug-in filters fail.


Included are the following chokes and installation guidelines:

DC Input: F240 Ring – 3-7 turns of DC power cable

RF Input/Output: 1/2" snap on - wrap 2 turns of RG8X size cable or 1 turn of RG-213 size cable near radio

Also make sure you connect a good RF ground to the transceiver ground post.

For additional RFI suppression, use a feed line choke at the antenna to suppress common current on the coax feed line – see our store for feed line choke alternatives for use at the antenna.

If you use a linear amplifier we have RFI kits for linear amplifiers that help suppress RFI in your shack or in your neighbor’s house.

Note to Flex Radio users:  Use snap on ferrites for firewire cable, speaker cable and mic cable,  Ring ferrites for Antenna output and DC power.
