Now That’s What I Call A Ferrite!

Now That’s What I Call a Ferrite!

The DX Engineering order arrived today, and I was delighted to see the new and improved .5” id Mix 31 snap on ferrite!

I’m guessing the buyers at DXE are always looking for better deals on better materials. This is a prime example. Pictured on the left is a sample of the .5″ id mix 31 snap on ferrite that I received in my first order from DXE. On the right is the new version I received today. Both are pictured on LMR-400 coax. I’m not too worried about them being too wide to fit side by side. On equipment that has closely spaced connectors I’ll use the original (smaller) size.

These Mix 31 snap on ferrites are a must have to keep the equipment rack free of stray RF. All the new 2018 RF Hardware Upgrades will be interconnected using LMR-400 UF coax jumpers with these snap on ferrites on each end.
