This may have been covered by the various topics on ferrites. I am trying to measure the blocking impedance or R value of the impedance as it pertains to ferrite chokes. There was one description by Owen Duffy (https://owenduffy.net/blog/?p=3489) that I tried but the measured values looked a bit off. Is there a better way?
Thanks, Terry, W4ZQ

Terry,
You may be aware that Jim Brown K9YC has done a lot of work on this subject. For example:-

Hi John,

I wrote a fundamentals paper on this for the QRM website that I co-developed in VK.

Maybe this document will answer some of your questions.
