It became pointless when you started insisting that a swinging choke was
useless for SSB.
I suggest that you quit while you arent too far off in the woods yet.
My comments were based upon solid engineering principles. I just did a
Google on "swinging choke" and suggest you do the same. The math presented
shouldnt be too hard for you.
Except for some of the usual drivel mixed in with reality on a 2000 AMPS
thread they all support my contentions. So does any engineering or technical
Please dont bother replying if it is only to keep repeating the same wrong
As far as modern supplies are concerned I dont dismiss them, just ignore
them for the moment as they are not related to this specific threads subject
