Excellent performance and built quality  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
With overload from strong AM broadcast signals, including a 50 kw station less than 10 miles away, it has been impossible to hear anything below 500 kHz, despite a long held curiosity about longr eliminated nearly all the images from the AM broadcast band, making it possible to finally hear several NDB signals (non directional beacons). The unit has a bypass switch so you can compare reception with and without the filter inline. When switched on, it is like lifting a thick curtain and seeing sunlight come through the window. The difference was dramatic and impressive. I am finally able to hear signals instead of noise and interference. Once my antenna system is improved, I expect my results to improve as well, but this filter is a necessary first step for anyone living in a suburban or urban environment with several nearby broadcast stations.

The unit itself has a solid and well built feel to it, and the bypass switch makes testing much easier. I received the filter within a week of ordering, and am so far thrilled with my purchase. For the price and performance, it was money well spent.
