Actually, a coax cable stub will make a better notch filter than discrete inductors and caps - has to do with the "Q" of the parts. However, the equipment needed to properly construct the stub is again, very costly.A coax cable stub will act as a notch filter. It is easy to do but it will not work as well a filter made using a bunch of inductors and capacitors.
Do a search for this to get more information: coax cable stub notch block filter
I think that the standard technique is to start trimming a coax that is too long and keep trimming until the station goes away.Actually, a coax cable stub will make a better notch filter than discrete inductors and caps - has to do with the "Q" of the parts.

I agree this is probably the easiest solution, other than manning up. They make those little dongles to send your iPod music onto FM so you can listen in a car. Get one and set it to the offending frequency. It won't completely obliterate the other station but it will likely make it unintelligible.Depending upon the signal strength of the 99.1 station that you don't want to hear, you might get relief from an FM transmitter set to that frequency and carried in your car. e.g., http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bluetooth-C...348550?hash=item4d3e28e246:g:OHYAAOSwKtlWmYJK
Mkay... not where I was going with this. Definitely not trolling. For those of you that have researched 99.1FM, it's a SPANISH radio station. I'm not apologizing for being offended by a non English speaking broadcast in America.I used to love finding weird music and strange viewpoints on the radio dial. (AM at night)
Now we must protect Virgin thought patterns from even the mere chance encounter of contradictory opinions?
I know a doctor who could write you a prescription for a couple of testicles.
Not a bad troll effort overall. You got several of us going for a bit.
I give it a 7.
Then what are you scanning for?As for the MP3 player idea, ALL music sucks, which is why I keep my radio on SCAN.
