Product Details

ASSEMBLED COAX FEED LINE CHOKES

Many customers have requested an assembled sleeve unun or balun 1/4" size cable and we have one all completed with shrink tubing and PL-259 end connectors or open ended on one end for a balanced connection such as a beam, dipole, etc.

All you need to add are 2 barrel connectors (Part # DFBC-1) to insert into your coax cable. For best results add one feed line choke at the antenna to keep the RF on the antenna and another feed line choke at the station entrance to reduce the common mode noise picked up by the antenna braid and fed into the station. Rated 500 watts from 3-61 MHz into 1:1 SWR load. Choking resistance of 500-900 ohms total. Use 2 cables in series for 160 meter choking to 1 MHz.

Portable operation is fun but also brings challenges to the radio operator concerning receiver “noise” levels, RF interference from adjacent sources including close by transmitting stations, and RFI from portable generators.  A typical scenario and some suggested Palomar product solutions are shown in the picture below:

Generator RFI testimonial:

Bob 

Received your order in a timely fashion. Tried the generator kit on Sunday & it drops the noise from S9 to S5 and 
took out all the electrical noise.  I may want some more toroids from you at some point for other interference problems
I have  here.
