Hang TT gang;

I received my 2.8 KHZ INRAD filter yesterday and "WOW!" what a 
difference it makes on SSB reception.  Now I can leave the PBT set at 12 
o'clock and switch between USB and LSB and they sound the same.  Gone 
are those annoying high pitched sounds and hiss encountered when 
switching from LSB to USB, which required resetting the PBT to the 3 
o'clock position in an attempt to "naturalize" the voices.

I did not get a chance to try it on transmit last night as the USB bands 
were long dead and buried by that time of night (2230 PST, 0130 EST).  
40 meters was overcrowded with too much anti-American international 
broadcast nonsense, 75 meters was filled with "CB'ers and rednecks", and 
160 had too high of a noise level at this QTH.  So, I shall try again 

Oh yeah, by the way, INRAD is "just down the road from me" here in 
Oregon.  I did not know that.
