 As we get ready for group radio events like the WI QSO, Special Events and Field Day, we concern ourselves with possible interference from a nearby  antenna that is on a different band. There are band pass filters and tuning stubs. There is a good article explaining tuning stubs and showing how to use them. According to the article, with two of  them and a switch, they a can help on most bands. Before the events, there is still time to make some.. 
“A stub is just a length of transmission line terminated in a fixed impedance, usually a short or open-circuit. “

Stay Radio Active…
