Default PAR Filters

Added another PAR Electronics filter to the collection...

VHF SYM 162HT Specifications and Plot | PAR Electronics

I've been traveling a route lately that is rich in NWS transmitters...good for weather notifications, bad for scanners. I got to try it out this past week and it's completely resolved all my phantom NWS signals in the VHF band (mixed in with pagers, DMR and all sorts of other things at times).

A side benefit is CloseCall now hits on things further away since the NWS transmitters are now greatly attenuated.

And a thanks to Dale as I ordered this right before Christmas and he was able to build it, send it out and have it arrive in exactly 1 week. And he kept me updated via email as well.

+1 for Dale @ PAR Electronics!

I use the VHF-FM filter on my BCT15X which is dedicated for VHF Aircraft band.

Those folks over there are top notch. (pun intended). I have 2 of their filters ( VHF/UHF bandpass ) and I am very happy. Dale has excellent customer service manners.

Thanks for the strong recommendations. I just bought one of the VHF SYM 162HT filters.

I live too close to an NWR transmitter, too.

This was on my wishlist; now, I'm updating my listening post and this is a necessary item.

Default Plus Plus Par Filters

Par filters I bought aren't $200. I guess the price depends on the filter you need? Contact Dale at Parelectronics.com he's quick to respond and help understand what filter you need. http://www.parelectronics.com/index.php
