The paper investigates the dynamic characteristics of mass filter by means of amplitude modulation of RF input voltage. The paper treats amplitude modulation of high frequency (ν = 9/10) and low frequency (ν = 1/10). The most intensive excitation bands are registered along the isolines βx= 0,9 and βy= 0,1, which cut off the upper stability island.
