RF combiner - RF Cafe Forums
Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.
Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

There are several well known topologies. These are easily available in textbooks, ham radio books, or even with the internet.

The most common and simple combiner to use is Wilkinson.

check out minicircuit's app note.
For those frequencies a core and wire version will work best. I just design one last month at those frequencies with good results.
