It is generally agreed that Zverev's "Handbook of Filter Design" is THE reference work for LC filter design. However, I crack it open, and the first thing he does is head off into lattice filter theory, and I don't have that background.
I have a rudimentary grasp of elementary RLC circuit analysis (steady-state, not impulse) (first EE circuit analysis class). Can anyone suggest book(s) suitable for getting me from there to ready to tackle Zverev?
My interest is casual design of HF and VHF receiver preselector filters, and HF and VHF transmitter output harmonic suppression filters, for amateur radio applications. I am NOT afraid of math; I am NOT afraid of numbercrunching; I am NOT afraid of MATLAB (GNU Octave, usually).
Thanks to everyone!
