|From: Ed McKinney KB8QEU|
This is a fine devise.
However, it is named wrong!!
It is NOT a "Duplexer" but officially is a "Diplexer".
You may say, "What's the difference?"
A "Duplexer" duplexes between a transmitter and a receiver by isolating them both onto one antenna. Usually the split is 1 Megacycle on 53 Megacycles band; 600 Kilocycles on 146 Megacycle band; 1.6 Megacycle on 224 Megacycle band; 5 Megacycles on 442 Megacycles band.
A "Diplexer" does what this device does. It combines two different bands to one antenna. Hence the first pair of "Diplexer" "Di" meaning to separate.
I suggest to MFJ to correct this misnaming of this device from it's wrong name of "Duplexer", which it does not duplex, to, "Diplexer"!
This change will aid greatly in increasing MFJ's reputation for doing, and saying, things correctly in the communications industry.
Thanks for reading this post.
