Re: Quarter wave stub bandpass plot

Just a thought on rg6 - my rx cable from my 2m Kuhne preamp is rg6 , a 28m length as tower is 22m high . this has been in service for more than 10 yrs with no problems. I used rg6 to achieve some attenuation from the Kuhne , I have good results on 2m dx and dont use the preamp in my k3 to keep noise...
