• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

MyAntennas CMC-VHF-2K choke

Has anyone tried this choke, rated for 110-180 mhz?

This looks to be a good choke alternative for those who make those "folded back braid" dipoles, which don't actually work the way you think they do. (close coupling / small spacing of the folded braid renders these types of antennas to be off-center fed dipole, and not half-waves)

From airband receive to maybe high-power 2m emergency use, it has my attention since I used one of their rx-only chokes on my on-ground-loop project with great success.

I'm thinking just cut a half-wave of coax, cut a quarter wave of braid away from it, and then attach to the choke. Now I just need to find a 2kw vhf source to test it! :)
