Re: Junk ferrite cores

If I recall correctly the ferrites used for EMI suppression on data cables are designed to be lossy. In otherwords the RF energy travelling along the cable should turn to heat in the ferrite material.
If so then they would be no use in an aerial system.

People keep upgrading their PC monitors, and a lot of monitor cables are being thrown away. First VGA, and now DVI. Many of them have EMI suppression ferrite cores of various sizes.
