>You may get away with using 31 MIX as it seems to cover freq ranges

The latest Fair-Rite catalog now lists #31 as the material of choice for 
suppression at HF. I concur. #43 is slightly better above 10 MHz. #77 is a poor 
choice compared to #31.

Thanks for the input on Lodestone. I have no direct experience with them. I hope 
that you complained loudly to them about this matter. 

I STRONGLY recommend that you buy ONLY in full box quantities that nave been 
packed by Fair-Rite. I've never seen a major problem with their packing. To 
support my research work, Fair-Rite shipped me a LOT of their products in small 
quantities. Only two or three of them broke (out of several hundred).
