Building a 520 kHz High Pass Filter for the RTL-SDR

Over on YouTube user kugellagers has uploaded a video showing how he designs and builds a 520 kHz high pass filter for his RTL-SDR dongle + upconverter. In the video he explains how to design the filter with the free Elsie software which is an electrical filter design and analysis program. He then shows how he builds and selects the filter inductors and capacitors and how he assembles the components on a PCB. Finally he demonstrates how his 520 kHz high pass filter is useful for filtering out atmospheric noise from lightning strikes.

Previously we posted about kugellagers’s other video in which he demonstrates his FM bandstop filter and 1.8 MHz high pass filter.
