I doing some amateur radio experimentation and want to create a bandpass filter. I believe that a Butterworth filter would be good because it has a flat frequency response in the pass band.
My center frequency is 1000Mhz and the bandwidth is 75 Mhz.
Since the the freq. is relatively high, I think the proper thing to do is use passive components in a ladder-type topology.
Does this seem like the right general path to follow for my design parameters?
Also, I'm going to build a circuit to do some testing. What should I on the lookout for in terms of my passive components (i.e. low ESR caps, etc.)
