If your receiver is plagued with 60/120 cycle buzzing in your shack or favorite portable QTH, the BUZZ-KILL will save your sanity. From the creative mind of NMØS, the BUZZ-KILL is a special audio filter that removes 60 cycle noise and all of its harmonics, beating them down 40 db or more - it kills the buzz! If you have been suffering with bad line noise QRM, this add-on audio accessory will make ALL the difference in your rig's reception. Similar in concept to the Hi-Per-Mite, it is a drop-in AUDIO filter/AUDIO amp with configurable gain. This filter is unique - it is not a noise blanker. Instead, it has a notch at 60Hz and at _every_ harmonic of 60Hz, so it will completely null all the power line frequency hum and buzz that plagues the HF bands, it's just gone! ALL THROUGH HOLE parts ensure an easy build, there are NO SMT parts.
This is a compact, flexible design that can be used as a stand-alone outboard unit, or it can be easily integrated into an existing receiver (see manual for details). It's onboard audio amp is capable of driving a speaker or headphones. Gain is constant from 100 Hz to 5kHz, so it can be used with any CW, SSB or AM receiver.
Employ this filter and your 60 cycle woes will disappear! A quantity discount is available for Club and Group builds, 5 kit minimum order required please. Contact the kitter at the email address at the bottom of the page for more info.
