Good to see you on the list.  I know we worked each other briefly one day on 
SSB (or it could have been AM).  I too enjoy the flexibility the 6K filter 
provides on the receive side in SSB.  I do use the Eagle on AM quite a bit and 
ALWAYS get excellent audio reports.  I have signed and just listen in sometimes 
and have overheard fellas stating... "man, that Eagle sounds like a boat 
anchor."  John Henry did a FB job on the AM fidelity.  I use a R/S speaker as 
well, but do not remember the model number.  It is the cubed shaped one with a 
single full range speaker.  It was a little bassy for the Eagle, so I changed 
the driver out with one that had a little more high-end and the Eagle really 
sounds sweet!
 73, and hope to work you again some day.... Eagle-to-Eagle. 

P.S., there must be quite a few Eagles on the air.  During one check-in on 
Midcars I heard two other Hams checked-in with Eagles in my 15 minutes on net 
for a total of three of us!  Both had questions about the radio so we talked on

Bought my Eagle last year and love it. I ordered the AM filter with mine
because I thought I might mess with AM, but the real advantage is that the
max DSP bandwidth follows the widest filter installed. I find I use the DSP
bandwidth usually set at 2600 for audio quality, then adjust down from
there depending on conditions. I use a R/S Minimus 7 speaker and the PBT
set about 1 o'clock.

Maybe I'll get more time in front of it at home this winter!
