8640Jr – Band 4 Low Pass Filter

 

8640Jr – Band 4 Low Pass Filter

There is a little distortion on the waveform of the Band 4 Low Pass Filter Output. The Spectrum Analyzer shows only about 14 db of attenuation on the 3rd harmonic of frequencies near the low end of the Range. This agrees with the predicted results below.

The original design looks like this…

The actual spectrum output looks like this on the low end of the range…

Things look better on the high end of the range, and the waveform looks better there, as well.

The predicted bandpass is as follows (21 mhz down about 12 db):

Here are the waveforms… For the Low End Frequencies:
