Combination Bandpass Filter

- NEW 419B Model


 


A reintroduction of a product first featured in 1994, Model 419B is a six position bandpass transceiving filter for HF services.  Constructed in an I.C.E. standard heavy case measuring (HWD) 31/2" X 71/2" X 8", Model 419A standard model features the popular six Amateur Radio frequency bands 160, 80/75, 40, 20, 15 and 10 Meters in a manual or auto-switching circuit.

Individual twin tuned circuit bandpass sections are mounted to the copper chassis with all connections soldered and joined with copper strap lines, switched with double pole individually scaled RF relays. Band selection is done from the front panel directly by the operator with the main knob control or by automated means derived by ground closure to the 8-pin DIN connector on the rear panel surface. Switching time 11 milliseconds, voltage requirements 12VDC negative ground at about 100ma supplied to rear panel through coaxial DC connector. Power rating 200W ICS. Unit defaults to pass all signals directly through when power is turned off from front panel. LED indicators show active band selected in either manual or auto mode. New features in the "B" model include DC fuse, AC or "dirty" DC capable to make Unit operable in harsh locations. Weight 5 pounds.

HF Lowpass Filters
                                                                                    model 420

One of our most popular products and sold worldwide, I.C.E. lowpass filters are a preferred standard among commercial and private users. Lowpass filters pass frequencies below rated cutoff pointwith little or no attenuation and harshly attenuate frequencies above designated cutoff point (30 MHz).

Model 420 Series filters are heavily built deep notching Chebyshev designs and are ideal for interference cases where harmonic or spurious energy is either detected or feared, and a must for good station design.

All units now rated for higher power than previous versions. Low power model 420 uses silver-mica capacitors, phenolic connectors, and available in SO-239s or N connectors. Higher power models 421 and 422 use thick (about five times the thickness of other manufacturers) Teflon TFE insulation sheet, brass or copper capacitor plates - and all connections are soldered - no "pop" rivets. Cases are all single unit chassis, fully shielded 1/8" thick 6063 aluminum extrusions.

All units come with 4-page owner's manual, connector covers, stainless steel grounding terminal. Use with mounting fixture for professional quality results.

 VHF Lowpass Filters


Interference to other services is also commonplace when VHF transmitters are being employed. Both low and high power versions of our popular low pass filters are offered below, and they may even be "stacked" for peak performance (low power unit between transceiver and amplifier, high power filter on station output). All devices provide harsh cutoff, high attenuation, solid crush-proof design casing.

Similar in construction, appearance, size and weight to lower frequency models detailed at right, Models 425, 426  have higher cutoff points and are usable to 54 MHz for transmitting applications, ICS. Packed with 4 page owner's manual, these units also fit perfectly with mounting frames.

  TV Highpass Filters / AC Line Filters
      model 472B                                                                                                         model 430B
Interference to television reception from nearby HF transmitters is common and often a frustrating problem. Most disturbances are caused by simple RF voltage overload and can be reduced or eliminated with no more than the installation of an inexpensive highpass receiving filter.

Probably the world's only complete TVI prevention package. ICE's Model 430 Series units combine deep-notch low end cutoff attenuation slope below television frequencies to stop differential mode interference, input currents limiters to block strong signal overload, shield choke for common mode (cable shield electrification) interference, and even a front-end blocking circuit to isolate the TV set from the cable line for added interference and over voltage protection.

Filter circuit is 11 sections overall, 75 ohms, and constructed in a fully shielded 1/8" thick aluminum chassis housing with 'F' connector female input and output for fast, convenient connection to line and receiver terminals.

Model 430B is a wide spectrum version passing all frequencies from 54 to 500MHz Other models are the same except with the addition of specific wave traps to offer more attenuation to known interference frequencies. Model 436B is a suck-out version specially designed for interference caused by a nearby FM radio station. Notch to FM band peaks at about 25db, internally adjustable. Model 437B is similar but notch range is Amateur 2 Meter band (144-148Mhz), also internally adjustable by coil placement. Both units are tuned to the center of each undesired frequency band.

Filters are individually bagged with 4-page owner's manual. Each measures 3" square by 1" high, insertion loss 1-2dB, weight 1 pound.

430B Wide Spectrum unit 54-500 Mhz $32.00
436B Same as Model 430B but with FM (88-108 Mhz) trap $34.00

TV Bandpass Filters

If you use a VCR or cable channel converter with a single channel output (channel 3 or 4), here's an inexpensive way to provide additional off-frequency attenuation and clean output.

Models 434B (Channel 3) and 435B (Channel 4) allow the passage of the single channel while attenuating all frequencies both above and below the channel. Each filter also contains a shield choke input to block external currents possibly traveling on the cable shield, input limiter circuitry, and even front-end capacitive blocking to isolate the filter circuit from the line.

Units are 75 ohm, non-DC passive, and are identical in appearance and size to highpass filters shown above.

BCB Interference Filters


 

 

Happy customer " I received the filter in good order, it has given me back 160 meters, this band was useless before the filter and now it is 100% usable. Thanks for a superb product at a totally reasonable price." de VE3XQQ..... Frank

AM broadcast stations transmitting in the frequency range from 550kHz to 1700kHz cause havoc with HF and VHF receiving operations, often inducing carriers, modulation, broadband noise and other disturbances into delicate equipment.

Such interference can frequently be heard mixing with other received signals in the shortwave bands and commonly overwhelms front ends of modern receivers.

Broadcast reject filters reduce AM band signals to levels where local Stations can still be received in most cases, but are no longer threatening to other desired services. A must for serious low frequency DXers or Amateur 160 Meter enthusiasts. Five models are available for both receive-only applications or for use with transceivers (allows transmission of up to 300 watts through the filter above the rated cutoff frequency).

Model 401 is for reception only and is designed to notch out the BCB band from 550kHz or 1700kHz, allowing reception of signals below 500 kc and above 1.8 MHz Model 400 units are designed to operate above 3.5MHz These two models are for reception only (400) or transceiving (400X) and, both units place the BCB band frequencies and below well into the stopband, inserting very high attenuation even at the higher end of the BCB band frequency segment.

Model 402 and 402X are receive only and transceive models respectively, and designed for use all the way down to 1.8 MHz, attenuating everything below.

Each filter is individually bagged with owner's manual, weights all 1 pound. Receive only filters are fitted with RCA pin connectors (or SO-239 connectors on request), while transceiver models are all SO-239s.

Order Model Application Attenuates Price
400 Receive Only  below 3.5 MHz $28.00
400X Transceive  below 3.5 MHz $42.00
401 Receive Only  500kc to 1.8 MHz $28.00
