I installed the Inrad Roofing Filter Mod just days
before the CW SS contest in my FT1000MP Mark V.
I also made the Noise Blanker mod per the W8JI website
while I was in there (already made the Key Click mod a
couple of years ago much to the other contester's
Even on CW it's a good and worthwhile improvement, 20m
got very, very loud and crowded on Saturday with good
conditions and high participation. The amount of
distortion and 'beeps & boops' of loud adjacent
signals was much reduced -- certainly this is $165
I'm going to test it out in the SSB SS where it should
be even more noticeable, but it's a keeper already.
And, I got my highest score in CW SS EVER -- the RX
was much easier to listen to during the crazy times.
