While my VI was being converted to PLUS I had them install the 
250Hz 9 MHz filter. Almost all my operating is CW and 99% of that is 
listening  for dx on 80 and 40. I use BOTH 250 Hz filters most of the time.
I have heard horror stories about loss of signals with both filters but
the primary loss is the noise. It is hard to detect any loss of SIGNAL
strength using both filters. Without both filters, some stations cannot 
be copied. Thank goodness for that NR button!
