Re: high Q output filters?

Higher Q means lower bandwidth over which matching is maintained, but
that's not necessarily a problem for QRP rigs. Also, the higher the Q,
the higher the voltage and currents circulating in the coils and
capacitors. Also, this is not typically a problem for QRP rigs. I've
seen high-power output capacitors literally unsolder themselves from the
heat generated by high circulating currents in a kW amp.
