Re: Band stop-Notch Filter suggestions

Besides Microwave Filter I used this guy out of Canada. Filters work for the need I had, notching out nearby FM that was preventing reception of my own signal. Sent him an e-mail with need and he gave me a quote for what he thought would work best. He has a full line of various use filters. http://w...

Re: Replacement for FM Broadcast CD players

Are you talking Automation or a simple player? Any of the modern automation suppliers will work all depends on your budget. Walk away time? what are you looking for.
