Actually I can believe Barry's claim for the 2.7 kHz. I have
a few Corsairs (2 are II's) and everytime I tap into the IF
chain after the 9 MHZ filter using either SDR-1000 or the
Time Machine board I see that those filter's bandwidths to be
closer to the 2.7 mark than 2.4. The filter shape is clean
and flat but just looks a bit wider than 2.4 kHz to me. It
doesn't matter which software package I use to look at it
with either. The hardware I use after the 9 MHz filter is
knoiw to be flat as well.
