Absolutely! And don't forget about the resistive component. Most
suppression chokes work by forming a low Q (typically about 0.4)
parallel resonant circuit with a resonance in the range where
suppression is needed. Near resonance the impedance is primarily
resistive. From a couple of octaves below resonance down to DC it looks
mostly inductive, and as you get low enough the inductive reactance goes
I don't know how these fencers work, but I'd start by using something
like 16-20 turns around a #31 toroid, and if the fencer works, stop
there. If it doesn't, pull off turns until it does.
