Ok Keith, and TenTec Reflectorees,
I had a full set of TenTec filters in my OMNI-VI (now upgrade 3). They
included the 1.8KHz, 500Hz (285), and 250Hz (282) in the 6.3MHz IF
position, and the 500Hz (217) in the 9.0MHz IF position. I have replaced
the 285, 282, and 217's with the 750, 751, and 753 INRAD filters. My first
real use of the new filters was last weekend during the CQWW CW test. I
operated with N2BIM as a 2 radio M/M with the OMNI being used on 40/80. I
have used this radio many times at N2RM's in a M/M setting. The biggest
complaint the other operators had about the radio was filter blow-by on 80
meters. Well let me tell you these new filters really make a difference.
I was able to get right in between the BIG GUNS on both 40 and 80 without
being bothered. I feel that the $330.00 I spent were well wort it.
73 and Happy Holidays
