Re: Toroid question


From professional connections, I know that Siemens toroids are widely
available in Europe. There should be mixes comparable to the popular
Amidon / Fair-Rite / Ferroxcube types (43, 61, 77, and 75/J) used in
the USA and Canada.

Whether these are any cheaper, I don't know. Check Farnell and other
major European distributors or Siemens directly.

Hi John,

Some of the guys this side are using 77s for feedline chokes
(possibly because thats all they were able to get) - I'm not sure if
you can get an FT140 75 anymore - is j material the same as 75?.

I should become an Amidon distributor for Ireland / UK / Europe -
the prices over here are insane. I've just seen some FT 240 77's on a
German site for 30 Euro a pop! ( as opposed to $9 in the US)

Any suggestions of sources would be who will supply outside the US
and take paypal would be helpful.
