I just took apart one of Radio shack's $19.95 telephone RFI filters and was
appalled to find that it contains nothing but a small toroid with about 25
turns of the telephone signal leads wound on it.  Now I know a dollar
doesn't go very far these days, but really!

Does anyone know if the K-Com (which costs the same and looks very much the
same) is the same electrically?

For $20, they could at least put in a couple of by-passes.
