Hi;
I am thinking of buying the Par VHFTN152-158 filter for my VHF receiving needs. I know how well this filter will work for the 2m ham band, but what if I want to listen to signals in the 160-161 Mhz range (this is U.S. railroad). How sharp is the response of this filter? Will it also attenuate my 160Mhz signals?

I also have the opportunity to buy separate filters for 152Mhz, 158Mhz and 159Mhz, so perhaps the 152Mhz (where most of the pager activity appears to be) would work best.

Thanks for your help

If you are certain that most of your problems are on 152 MHz, look into the PAR VHFDN152.  It has less loss on 160 MHz.

Good luck.

Send Dale an email. He will give you any information you may need. He built me a couple of filters recently that took care of an unusual problem I had. They work great.
