In the VHF range, high-quality narrow-band filters with reasonable physical dimensions are extremely difficult to realize. Excessive pass-band insertion loss accompanies filters employing lumped constant elements, and unreasonable size is a natural consequence of coaxial-resonator filters. Harmonic crystal filters are inadequate because of the unpredictable amount of spurious modes above the harmonic frequency; and hence they can only be used for very low percentage bandwidths. A solution to the above problems is provided by the use of helical resonators for high-quality filters. This paper describes the helical resonator, measurement of its Q, and coupling to the resonator. A procedure for the design and construction of a filter using helical circuits is then presented. Finally an example is given illustrating the design method, and several photographs of helical-resonator filters are shown.
