The American Mobile Phone System (AMPS) has a very complex frequency allocation which is divided between two operators A and B. Therefore, high performance multiple-band system components are desired in both the downlink and uplink. High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) filter and amplifier can be used in the reverse link reception where high sensitivity is desired and the power is within the range that HTS can handle. In this paper, we introduce a nine-pole bandpass filter to be used in operator B for reverse link reception. The filter is an example of dual-band filter with asymmetric response.
