Yup , you are so right Jim , I had my brain only partially engaged when I did
that post ( someone had plowed into the rearend of my pickup and I wasn't all
here ) , but really what a person needs would be something like a low pass
filter , and it does seem that when I swept the DCI filter for two meters that
its pass response at 435 was negligable and actually quite good , but it did
have some harmonically related responses , just not in amateur portions of the
spectrum , guess I will have to go back and look at it again on the tracking
generator to make sure I'm not all wet ....

Thanks for the heads up though on the cavity , I should have caught that one

we had this unidentified object in the sky yesterday .......

someone called it the "sun"   ;^)
