outside the pass band. The Omni VI uses the same filters but different
amplifier stages.

3. Tentec filters ring a lot less on tropical noise than most other
filters. I've not used the narrow CW filter but have no problems with

the response further. I do notice that the narrow filter and narrowing
with the BPT does help weak signals, contrary to some other radios I

4. that surely would take some modification, like sticking a narrow CW
filter in the filter slot normally occupied by the stock SSB filter. And
then probably adjusting the transmit BFO crystal to get through the
