microwave question
Posted by bill

All, I am trying to identify a section of waveguide. It is X-band. Looking into the waveguide from one end you can see that it tapers with what looks like steps (for lack of a better term) into a small slit about 1mm wide. On the other side of the slit, it expands back to the full size of the x-band. There are four tuning slugs, two for each taper on each side of the slit. Does anybody have any idea what this might be? Thanks -Bill

It's a filter of some sort. Can be checked on a Network Analyzer and (maybe) tuned to the ham band.
