I also use this FZ-02 Filter in my receivers with good results.
You can even use it to make some "gain" when using the 500 Ohm input and
the 18k output...

Hi Mauro !
The FZ_02 mechanical filter can be easily inserted into a 50 Ohm
receiving(!) system by the use of two 1:9 transformers (at Input and
Output of the FZ-02) to match the 500 Ohm Input/Output impedances of
the filter at the yellow wires! Use capacitors of the exact capacity
[in pF] as printed at both ends of the filter for compensation. (I
soldered the capacitors to the unused 18k-Ohm wires = red).
You will get a flat top of the attenuation curve and steep edges.
measured Attenuations at :
461.2 kHz -64.91dB
467.1 kHz -3.10dB
473.0 kHz -2.70dB
479.1 kHz -3.48dB
485.3 kHz -63.62dB
used 1:9 Transformer : FT50-43 toroid, 10 turns of (flat) trifilar
enamelled wire (AWG #26).
This filter is a good cure to all sorts of intermodulation and noise
caused by out-of-band signals.

this is the schematic of my stupid receiver..
today I bought from Ebay a mechanical filter FZ_02 to clean a bit the
coming soon: a 20W TX (mosfet IRF510) for tests with "earth_electrode
antenna" (impossible for me to build a Marconi)

Very interesting... Do you have mord info Mauro?
