PDF Data Sheet

VR7-(UHF) HT

This series of notches is generally used to selectively attenuate one (or two) UHF signals. The VR7-470/600 HT, VR7-600/700 and VR7-700/870 HT models act on a preset UHF frequency range, whereas the VR7-(Fo) HT allows the user to specify an operating frequency (Fo) and notch depth for optimal selectivity.

  • Fo: from 400 to 900 MHz (UHF / Hyperband)
  • Rejection: >30 dB at Fo
  • Selectivity Examples:
    • 3 dB BW: ± 2.0-3.5 MHz (Fo = 470 to 600 MHz)
    • 3 dB BW: ± 3.5-4.5 MHz (Fo = 600 to 800 MHz)
  • Operating Bandwidth: 5 to 860 or 1000 MHz
  • Passband loss: < 1dB ± .5 dB

CR7-(Fo)-LQ (Fo - 5 to 1000 MHz)


CR7-(Fo)-LQ
Fixed Frequency Notch

This type of notch has less selectivity than an HQ notch and is used when high temperature stability and less selectivity is suitable. It is available for TV/FM/RF. Example graphs show double LQ notches for signal suppression for 450 MHz and 999 MHz RF system applications. Similar multiple LQ notches are use for UHF antenna bandstops and CATV semi-adjacent channel deletion filters.
