Isn't there a string-of-toroids solution to this that Radiokit used to sell
and I imagine Amidon or DavisRF or Wireman or someone sells now?
I don't recall the specific toroid configuration but I was told by several
folks that it solved a variety of Exciter-to-Amp problems for them. I'm
sure the guru's here and/or on the amps at contesting.com list know.
