No. Stock is with a pair of 8 pole filters at about 2.4 KHz each.
CW/Narrow SSB filters were options.

That's about right. Without option 3 (or a true OMNI VI plus) you have
one option in the 9 MHz IF, but I think you get 3 options in the 6.3
MHz IF. Pretty flexible choices. And now you have the potential (if
you plan some really horrible QRM avoidance) for the INRAD roofing

No online copies that I know of. Don't worry, when you get the rig it
will become clear quickly. It is a very good radio.
Happy to schedule a CW QSO with you OMNI to OMNI if you like. I am
mainly a 40 meter CW op.
