[AMRadio] 1500 KHz trap for NC-156

I just called on my favorite filter design program Elsie
and came to the conclusion that going clear down to
about 3 uH (resonated with 3000 pF) would be
advisable in a 50 ohm system.  The two items would
be connected in parallel to form a trap, and that trap
would be placed in series with the receiver antenna

To do that would require a variable inductor and a
fixed capacitor, preferably mica.

With inductor Q value of 200 and capacitor Q of
1500  the loss at 1800 kHz would be about 9
dB and the depth of the notch would be about 40 

These comments are in rather exact agreement with
others so far.
