Low Cost Antenna Traps
Let's work through the design of a simple-to-construct low-cost antenna trap

La Trampa Balun
The choke balun has represented a more effective solution, from the electrical point of view, for monoband antennas

Multiband trap antenna
The design of the multi-band trap antenna in this article, that should cover the as many as possible of the classical HF radio-amateur bands
