70 MHz bandpass filter
When working on the 144 MHz bandpass filters, these were tunable over such a wide range that 70 MHz was almost in reach. Changing the 3pF capacitor for a 22 pF version did the job. The tuning was not optimum, it would have been better to use 10 pF caps and maybe a 6.5 turn inductor. Anyway with the 6 turn inductor it was a nice filter.
The plot for this filter. Vertical is 10dB per division, horizontal each division is 4 MHz.
In this configuration 50 MHz could not be tuned.
