Product Details
MPN: JC-1-1500
Country/Region of Manufacture: USA

Simple AC Power Cord Noise Filter Choke+ Power Cord included

The simplest, most cost effective AC power cord noise filter is a ferrite ring installed as shown in the picture (at the appliance AC input) to stop feed line appliance radiation back into the AC power line or into the radio/appliance to suppress common mode power line noise current on the AC power cord or to suppress common mode noise present on the power lines from degrading the performance of the attached device.

Keeps RFI out of appliances like TV, radios, computers, etc and like wise keeps noise generated by electronic devices from feeding the noise back into the AC power line and affecting other devices plugged into the same lines.

These chokes are cheap, easy solution for RFI issues. Just replace your existing power cord with these pre-wound cables and enjoy interference free operation.

Got your own AC power cable that needs a ferrite ring only? The use ACCF-1.4 ring. This ring also works well on switching power supplies (use 1 on AC input and another on the DC output or just order kit RFI-SMPS).

TECH NOTE: We also stock RFI kits to protect effected devices such as garage door openers, computers (laptops, desktops), dsl/cable routers, ethernet hubs and many more devices. If you run a high powered RF amplifier in your ham station also consider a linear amp RFI kit which will cut down RFI transmitted by your station. Remember there is always a “transmitter” and a “receiver” of RFI and the quest is to find and choke the “path” the RFI has selected – you need to add ferrites to both the transmitting side and the receiving side to eliminate RFI problems. The RFI-HTS kit only helps suppress RFI on the receiving side.

Typical RFI Problem/Solution:

I am Larry, a ham operator and I am having interference issues with
my Direct TV system.
My station is a FT450D through an Ameritron ALS-600. From the amp
through a coax switch  to choose between an OCF dipole or an Hustler
5BTV vertical. Any power over 100 watts and my DTV goes off the air
and must completly reboot/format. Coax is RG-8. The DTV dish is
pointed away from the dipole and separated by about 25'. DTV was
totally useless! They suggested I not talk on the radio while she is
watching TV!  Please help me with a reasonable, cost effective
soultion. (The wife gets really pissed when I shutdown the tv!)

Thank you,



Hi Larry,

Your RFI problem is quite common and is usually a sign of either a radiating coax feed line or reception of your radiated signal (source) by the Direct TV (the victim) through either the AC power lines acting as “antennas” for your ham signal or the coax braid of the satellite antenna acting as an antenna for your signal.

The solutions are straight forward:

1. To make sure your feed line is not radiating you need a feed line choke at each antenna feed point (also makes your antenna work better since it is not using the coax as part of the antenna).  You can use our simple Kit 110 with 5 snap on chokes on each antenna for this purpose.  Part # Kit 110 at $27.50 each – one for each antenna.  These chokes will keep your feed line from radiating and coupling into your ac power lines.  INFO HERE

2. The radiation from your antennas themselves may also be getting into the ac power lines and coax braid of the Direct TV antenna so you need to protect the victim receiver.  Depending upon the sophistication of your direct TV setup (e.g. home theater, dvd, tape player, sub woofer speakers, etc), the path of the RFI may be coming thru the AC power lines of any connected device to the video including the video monitor itself!  To help solve this problem we have a home theater RFI kit for up to 5 devices (you need a minimum of two – one for the Direct TV receiver(AC and coax input) and another for the video monitor AC power lines and HDMI or video input cable.  Our kit part # is RFI-HTS.  INFO HERE

These items should help reduce the RFI and let you operate on the air while your wife watches TV.
