Rick....Fortunately the front end of the Omni 6 is so solid that you
normally do not need the 250Hz filter during contesting. I set both IF

When you use your Omni 6 in contest is when you really come to appreciate
the receiver design. There is NO other radio that can handle the strong
signal environment such as 40mtr operation during the CQ WW DX test. I
speak from experience.
