1.) Form the leads on the capacitors as shown above and solder from the pad to the outside ground area.2.) Be sure that the turns on the coil are separated by a distance equal to the diameter of the wire3.) Form the leads on the coil as shown above.4.) Solder the coils in place as shown above.5.) Use a metal box with a little clearance at either end. The filter board will mount on top of thethe SO239 connectors. Place the board on the chassis and mark the center pin hole positions.Center punch the hole positions with a center punch or a sharp nail and hammer to keep thedrill bit from walking. Use a 5/8” (16mm) drill for the SO239 mounting holes6.) Mount the SO239 connectors. Insert the connectors into their holes, place the ground ring on firstfollowed by the lock washer and nut from the opposite side. Position the grounding ring tabso it will not be under the circuit board. Tighten securely. Bend the tab on the grounding ring vertical7.) Place the filter board down onto the SO239 connectors with the center pins inserted into the holes onthe circuit board. Very thoroughly solder the center pins to the circuit board pads, a fair amount of heatwill be required8.) Solder a piece of bus wire from the ground lug of the SO239 connector to the ground side of thefilter board on each end. Place cover on box.
