Hi Graham, well there is not a lot of difference between "pulse amps" and
any other sort really from that point of view. The choke "opposes changes in
current" and also allows the signal to go to the load rather than be short
circuited by the PSU. At HF the situation is slightly different as you can
run into resonances as well, but as I understand most mobile phones use
Class E for efficiency and battery life in just the same way as we use 'em
on LF....that is if you ever switch em on (I hardly ever do !!) Being
digital they dont need to be linear.
