Thanks for the very useful info on chokes.
After reading all this , i decided to build a choke with the same 10mm
RG393 teflon silver wired coax.
In Friedrichshafen i bought some beautiful spinner silvered 7/16
connectors for 10mm cable :-)
I used a longer piece and made 7 turns through 10 cores mix31 ferrite.
I'm waiting for a cabinet to build an L-network together with this choke.
Link with a picture of all stuff:
Any comments or tips are still welcome!
