    I have sorted out crystals according to their frequency and made a MS excel document. I user G3UUR method (details to this link to measure the crystals. I have currently no experience of making crystal filter. Can anyone help me to make few filters. I am uploading the measurement here. There are 5 groups. 3 groups for CW filter using 3 crystal each and 2 group for SSB filter using 4 crystals each. upload_2021-8-3_20-29-44.png upload_2021-8-3_20-30-14.png upload_2021-8-3_20-31-1.png upload_2021-8-3_20-31-39.png upload_2021-8-3_20-32-6.png

    From the article that you linked, you need to calculate one of the motional parameters, Cm or Lm. This parameter, along with the holder capacitance and the 3 dB bandwith can be entered into the crystal filter design program Dishal. I have also used other software, including AADE Filter Design and W7ZOI's XLad08 program, but I think Dishal is somewhat simpler to use for for first-time design. Refer to this article:

    The simplest crystal filter design is the Cohn min-loss, where the values of the capacitors are all the same. Dishal includes a module for Cohn filters. These filters are good for 3-pole CW and simple 4-pole SSB filters. Dishal also can calculate Chebychev filters, which are more complex, and typically can be used for 5, 6, or 8-pole SSB filters with steep skirts.

    This website has a download link for Dishal2052, the most recent version:

    Also, download the help file, dishalhelp from the same site.

    Hi Ted,

    Thanks a lot for pointing me to the right direction. I think found all the resources that I need to build the filter.
