I am politely ending my participation on this subject. And i do not foresee my self actively seeking any further communications with or about you . Jeff

    Come on,Jeff,Fair's fair!
    Your "Troll" did start this thread,after all,so you could hardly blame Rich for what followed!;)

    I'm quite sure Rich's devices work,although I've never in 40 years of RF work seen anything to convince me that the conventional circuits don't!
    That said, Rich isn't becoming a millionaire from these kits,so if people buy them it just gives them a choice,& it's not really doing any harm.
    We,on the other hand seem to be limited to being Tom's or Rich's "groupies"!;)

    Oh i would agree any personal attack by him to me on this subject is fair game. Just i no longer need to drag this through the bush's as they. Any further thought's or personal opinion's are pretty much a moot point in my book. I did gather what i was looking for and this thread was very useful for that. Now that i have seen what i wanted too see i am satisfied believe or not . I left with pleasantries And wish good will. I respect those whom both on the forum and off the forum's input. Rather anyone else harbor's any feeling's good or bad for ever whom, Well so be it. I do not suggest i have or have not got the abilities or resources at my disposal to pass judgement on this topic. I made my comment's and they are what the are. With that being said i would be happy to read on if others have anything more to add to this topic but as for myself i have gained what i was after and thank those whom participated in it... 73 Jeff

    Jeff, You can't insult Rich. So don't even try. Rich is like a guy I recently saw in a movie. it was a short scene in a movie where basic trainees were learning from the tough drill sargent on how to resist the effects of "waterboarding". The DS covered there face in (burlap?) and started puring water over them, each one immediately caved in to submission. So the trainees dared the DS to have it done to him. He layed down on the table they covered him with the (burlap?) and started vigorously pouring water over his face. They were trying to get even and kept the buckets coming one after another, The DS didn't move a muscle or make a sound. After several buckets of water they thought they may have drowned him. They quickly pulled the burlap off his face and saw him laying motionless with his eyes closed. They thought they drowned him, with that suddenly the DS opens his eyes and spits a big mouthful of water into the guys face!! This is how picture Richard to be. So may as will give it up. G3HZO has ended the debate in my eyes, too bad Tom isn't around for the finale.

     THE FINALE: The term "VHF suppressor" is a misnomer since the R//L device is not a VHF attenuator, it is a VHF-amplification reducer. It accomplishes this by reducing the parallel-equivalent R presented to the anode at the anode's VHF parasitic resonance. Lower parallel-equivalent R =s lower amplification. The bottom-line is that lowering the VHF Q of the R//L device lowers VHF-amplification - thereby reducing the chance of VHF parasitic oscillation.

    I revisited the NiCr vs copper wire VNA tests and used a slightly better test fixture and I've written up a short study report.

    Basically, the results are pretty much the same as before but I've included some graphs generated from the VNA data.

    At 300kb it's too big for the QRZ uploader so I've up loaded it to here:

    It's been written in a hurry so there may be a few typos but generally it should be OK :)

    Thanks :) Note that my call is G0HZU not G3HZU. The early G3??? series of callsigns date back way before I was born!
