HF-Band High Pass Filter: Extensive Line-up of high pass filter

AWG Tech has an extensive lineup of HF-band with 1-dB passband frequency starting from 1 MHz to 30MHz.

In theory, a high pass filter will allow any signal higher than its cut-off frequency to pass through. But it is not possible for any high pass filter to have infinite passband above its cut-off frequency. This is because in practice, all lumped element components (inductors and capacitors) have a self-resonant frequency and in most cases, capacitors and inductors cannot be used at frequencies above their self-resonant frequency.

AWG Tech has done extensive research on pushing the passband frequency of high pass filters to their limits. We now have many models of high pass filters which are very broad band.

HF-Band High Pass filter:Tackling the Basics of the HF-Band and High Pass Filters

High pass filters that function on a HF-Band (high frequency band), or more referred to as a HF-band high pass filter, make communication over long distances a lot clearer. This is due to the fact that the HF-band is an important component of the shortwave frequency band, thus communications at these frequencies are often referred to as shortwave radios. In addition, these radio waves can be reflected back to the Earth by the ionosphere layer in the atmosphere – a practice called “sky wave” propagation.

The Main Uses of the HF-Band Frequency

Primarily, the HF-band frequency is usually used by amateur radio operators, who can take advantage of the long-distance communications plus the “thrill factor” resulting in the production of contacts in variable circumstances. Also, other modes of communicating, like sending continuous wave morse codes (especially by amateur radio) and through single sideband voice transmissions are very common in the HF-band than on any other frequencies. This is due to their bandwidth-conserving trait; however, broadband modes, like TV transmissions, are usually not allowed by the HF-band’s relatively tiny piece of electromagnetic spectrum space.

The Propagation Characteristics of the HF-Band Frequency

The dominating means of long-distance communication in the HF-band is through sky wave propagation. This propagation takes place with radio waves being directed at an angle into the sky to be refracted back to the Earth from ionized layers of atoms in the ionosphere. With this method, the HF-band frequencies can travel farther than the horizon, around the Earth’s curve and can be received even through long-distance communications.

However, the compatibility of this spectrum portion of this particular communication can differ greatly with a complicated fusion of the following factors:

  • Sunlight/the darkness at the transmission and reception site
  • Transmitter’s/receiver’s closeness to solar terminators
  • The Season
  • Sunspot Cycles
  • Solar Phenomenon
  • The Polar Aurora

Understanding the High Pass Filter Circuitry

Manufacturers designed the high pass filter with a capacitor’s reactance at its highest at low frequencies. In addition, the capacitor functions just like an open circuit and will block any signal output until it achieves the required cut-off frequency. Right above the cut-off frequency, the reactance of the capacitor is significantly lowered and functions like a short circuit which allows all input signals to go through the output.

Overall Conclusion with the HF-Frequency Band and High Pass Filters

The main functions of a HF-band high pass filter, based on the above given facts, make communications over long distances possible with the HF-band frequency. With the functions of the high pass filter, this filters out the bass signals in the audio, thus making a clearer reception of audio sounds during the communication process over long distances.
