AM IF filter

Posted on Mar 18, 2013

Typical QRP receivers include Direct Conversion (DC) and simple Superheterodyne types. These receivers often have quite a wide AF bandwidth which can make inteligiblity somewhar restricted, especially under difficult QRM conditions. Many commercial amateur transcievers also suffer from this t.ex the Yaesu FT101B.

This is a simple filter that restricts the LF response a little as well providing quite a heavy HF roll-off. The prototype has enhanced a Yaesu FT101B that was only fitted with an AM IF filter. The IC is an LM358. Construction needs no detailed description. Layout is not critical.
