Thread-topic: Notch for DCF39

noticed something I'd wish to comment further, ref. quoted text from
As far as I can see at the moment the only problem is that the output of the filter must not be loaded too heavily, so a FET source follower is probably called for ( J310 running reasonable amount of source current to keep the IMDs down ??).
This is the wrong way to achieve high impedance (and good IMD),
it is no need to keep the "source current low" or whatever,
don't understand where one could get such assumptions from,

A simple source follower has also very low gain, probably around 0.2-0.4x voltage gain, but this is easily improved using an extra PNP device running with 10-30mA, so it may even have higher gain than unity, and to improve the input impedance you add some positive feedback to the gate.
A more complicated solution using J310 fet was shown in Radcom some time ago,
described for my frame antenna, but I use it for my active antenna on the roof

Hi all, a belated Chrismas present to the Group. As a result of a discussion
with Hugh M0WYE,  I calculated, and simulated a Bridged-T Notch Filter for
136kHz, which should reduce the level of DCF39 by about 30dB which only
giving about 2 or 3 dB loss at the top of the band. Hugh has made up the
filter and from workbench tests it seems promising. It occurs to me that
this may be of interest to those living closer to Burg that we do.

Details on

We would be interested if anyone finds it useful.

Cheers de Alan G3NYK
