Are you talking about increasing suppression/restraint by increasing
resisistance, or by decreasing it?
Ian: To illustrate your point for us, please design an Rs/Ls suppressor
that would be suitable for use with a single 3-500Z--such as the W8JI and
AG6K suppressors used for Wes' measurements. To simplify calculations,
please assume that Ls has zero ESR at 150MHz. According to Wes, the
nichrome Ls had 2.7 ohms of ESR at 150MHz.

Ian: Do you feel that my discourse on parallel/series transformations on
page 27 in the March 1989 issue of *QST* magazine was in error? .If so
in your opinion, where did I miss the boat?
