Sometimes it seems there is a big difference between theory and practice in
dealing with solutions to inter-station interference.
I am guessing you would not be as concerned if you just had a strong second
harmonic, equivalent to yet another 40 over S9 signal on the band. Instead,
perhaps you have a trashy out of band signal all over the other band?
There are many other factors that can come into play than what stubs you use
and the length of those stubs. Other cables and devices that you think are not
a problem could be the entire problem. Unfortunately there is not as much
written about the real world, testing and solutions as there is about textbook
As an example, I have a homebrew coaxial filter made from an article in NCJ for
40M that makes absolutely no difference
in attenuating harmonics from 40M when the SWR goes SKY HIGH above about 8.5
Mhz. Same experience when I borrowed a high power bandpass filter from W3NQN a
few years ago.
Perhaps try your stubs away from the station in a temporary set up on someone's
with a very simple antenna setup to see if they are more effective. If they
are start looking at why they don't work at the big station.
