General description

MFJ invented the tunable active antenna many copies have been made without success — as well as last ones. Why? Because MFJ has made uninterrupted enhancements where others haven’t. The MFJ-1020C was totally redesigned with new technology. New technology uses a dual gate MOSFET and a gigahertz bandwidth buffer. It improves get and selectivity, decreases sound and intermod, and isn’t prone to self-oscillations that can damage your receiver.

Sagami Engineering Mfg HY3K-HG 3KW Amateur Ham CB 2-way Radio Low Pass Filter vs MFJ-1020C Indoor active pricing

Who needs low pass filters (LPF)? Today’s state-of -the-art transceivers and amplifiers can indeed pass the FCC prerequisites for FALSE emissions. Still, they can still produce enough FALSE RF energy to get in the way with the TV and broadcasting receptions. Your aim isn’t only to pass the FCC’s test but your neighbor’s, is not it? When you run high power, an external LPF is wise. Suppose you’re running 100 W barefoot on HF with 43 dB attenuation for FALSE emission as per FCC prerequisite, your FALSE emission power is 0. 005W or 5mW. You want to run a kilowatt power amplifier. You get 1000W on the basic frequency with FALSE emission of 0. 05W or 50mW. It’s sort of QRP on harmonic frequencies Simply put, when you run power amplifier, your FALSE emission is boosted by the same formula. When you run legal bound 1500 W, your FALSE emission power is 0. 075W or 75mW. Solution: Improve your FALSE emission by adding an external LPF. Use the 120 dB attenuation external LPF. Your FALSE emission power is down to 1. 5 10-10 W (0. 00000000015) or 150 pW (picowatt) at 1500W operation level. If an interior LPF in the transmitter is failing, you’ll still get a PPM level cleaner signal Satoru Matsushima JA1EUI, a founder of Sagami Engineering Mfg has intended uncompromised high quality LPF’s, CMF’s and coaxial antenna switches for the amateur radio community. Satoru is an ex-engineer at Anritsu in Japan. He was involved with radios and measuring instruments designs there. Anritsu’s flagship measuring instruments are famous and that what he uses for his own design works and quality assurances.
