Keith (and Ten-Tecnophiles)
Since about June of this year, at least for the 6 MHz IF, there have been
happy reports on this reflector from folks who replaced their T-T/NS filters
with INRADS. That made me feel lots better about spending the extra $20 or so
per filter. I don't think I've seen anyone's comparison of the (relatively
new) 9 MHz filters. The difference has been described as being readily
detectable, though not "night and day."
I was of course teasing about the scientific study (though it might be fun),
but I do wonder how much one's ears listen to that extra $20 compared to the
actual difference. And those of us who've liked putting INRAD/IRC filters
into Kenwood rigs
may come to the problem with even more faith in the product.
But, all told, I'd recommend saving the real serious scientific questions for
folks like the doc who wants to "just do this simple blood test for your
prostate" when you turn 50. But that's not a topic for this reflector...
