SOTABEAMS’ LASERBEAM-817 Filter Module Fitting Service
The module builds on the success of SOTABEAMS range of LASERBEAM Filter Modules, the LASERBEAM-817 digital audio filter module is the perfect addition to your FT-817. This module has been designed to specifically compliment the FT-817. It has a new filter line-up, optimised gain for this application, revised switching and a filter select LED.
The LASERBEAM-817 greatly improves on the performance of the stock ceramic SSB filter and has a far superior shape-factor when compared to the aftermarket Collins Mechanical Filters.
The LASERBEAM-817 module is an amazing value upgrade whether you have extra filters installed or not.

When I left school, I went straight into the TV & Radio business. Having acquired several of the City and Guilds at Norwich City College and armed with my new “Colour TV” certificate I obtained a job with a large company called Telefusion based in Norwich
It was after a couple of years running the service department at their Fakenham branch that I made the decision to set up my own service department here in Aylsham. Initially it was alongside a partner and we started off doing trade repairs for other Companies in Norfolk. Our business was called “Cortons Electrical” which had a large workshop in Red Lion Yard Aylsham that we gradually kitted out for Radio, TV, Hi-Fi and domestic repairs.
I carried on studying for all the electronic City and Guild courses that Norwich City College ran and became part of the furniture at the college and was eventually offered a part time teaching job which I held for ten years. Mainly writing and delivering courses on TV Servicing, Video Recording and Servicing, Compact Disc Technology, Satellite TV and various practical fault finding courses.
I first met up with the Radio Amateur Group “The Bittern DX Group” at a local event in 2011 and they triggered my old interest in amateur radio. After attending a few meetings I set about getting a licence for myself and managed to move from Foundation through to the Advanced in just over 3 months. My main interests are of course based on the electronic side of the hobby, both construction and repair but I really enjoy the many aspects of the hobby especially the social side. I have been involved with Norfolk Amateur Radio Club as a tutor on their courses, but always happy to help individuals with their studies.
Now I spend my time between repairing all types of electronics Making aerials and having FUN.
