My OMNI VI with OPT 3, it is not a VI+. I have been monkeying around with
the DIP switch on the INRAD roofing filter cca and the jumper next to the
It seems as though the OEM narrow filter is bypassed. I am wondering if the
INRAD Mod is bypassing the "now installed" 1st IF cw filter. The INRAD
Roofing Filter is a "CW Filter". I did notice one switch/jumper
configuration that the received signal strength on the S meter drops 3-4 s
units. I have not checked that config in a ugly pile-up to see if that is
the config that selects the roofing filter and the 400Hz INRAD 1st IF CW

Did you get the install instructions for the INRAD roofing kit? There
are a couple different ways you can install it, one of which is to use
N1 or N2 soft switches to activate it. The other way, as it's installed
on mine (VI+), is to have the roofing filter installed full-time. I
have the 2.4K roofing filter.
