144 Mhz. harmonics rejection stub filter

Filter connected to the output of your transmitter and notch out all the major harmonics.

There are four open-circuit quarter-wave stubs, to notch out the 2nd, 3rd and 4th harmonics.

The 5th-harmonic stub S4 is optional. Leaving it out improves the VSWR from about 1.5 to a near-perfect 50-ohm match.
