Vernon -- I have an Omni VI, but the IF chains are similar I think.  I 
also run  mostly CW and the 500 Hz filter in the 9 MHz IF makes a BIG 
difference in the background noise, especially on the low bands.  I 
rarely use the 250 Hz filter, since I like to hear a little each side of 
the operating frequency.  So, my advice would be to spend your money on 
the 9 Mhz 500 Hz filter.
