Those chokes are of a material that is designed for audio frequencies. I
can still remember the day's in my youth when I could hear the 15 kHz
horizontal sweep frequency.
I would not be using those for a frequency more than a hundred times the
frequency they were designed for.
Use the #31 material for 1.8 Mhz. Go see K9YC's web page to see why.
