Improvements for 2016:   New Luxury Band Pass Filters are here for 80m, 40m, and 20m.   200 Watt

They offer increased power handling capability and superb adjacent ham band signal attenuation.

We have 5 Band Passer Filters for 80 - 10 Meters.   100 Watts

These filters reduce the phase noise of transmitters when operated in close proximity; also receiver de-sensing.
