- This is a Cookbook for VHF-UHF Transmitting Chokes.
- RFI, Ferrites, and Common Mode Chokes For Hams This tutorial is directed specifically to RFI in ham radio applications. It includes an extended discussion of the use of common mode chokes as transmitting baluns, and extensive measured data on ferrite chokes. A chapter on audio and computer interconnections in ham stations shows how to make bulletproof connections between a computer sound card and ham rigs for SSB, RTTY, PSK31, and SO2R contesting without expensive interface boxes, using nothing more than simple cables with the right connectors on each end.

Are you unsure of how to get started with the Pi? Do you know someone who just got a Raspberry Pi? If either of these are true, this video is designed specifically for you. It will walk you through every step from flashing the OS to the SD card, to installing Build a Pi, and configuring your radio for the most popular applications.
About Using your NanoVNA
NanoVNA is a handheld Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) with small outline, originally designed by edy555. It is a low cost yet high performance (at its price point) vector network analyzer (VNA), with LCD display, and can be powered from a 3.7V Li-ion battery.
As known by most hobbyists, NanoVNA has become the most popular VNA and antenna analyzer project in the community since its release in 2019.
