It sounds like the seller had a CW filter in one of the IFs that
was removed before he sold you the radio without resetting the

Without knowing what filters are still installed, check menu
5-2 (CW nor), 5-1 (8.2-2.0), 5-3 (8.2-250), 5-5 (455-2.0),
5-6 (455-500), and 5-7 (455-250). The factory "stock" settings
are: 5-2 = 8.2, and 5-1, 5-3, 5-5, 5-6, 5-7 = OFF.
Check pages 29, 101, 102 and 113 for more detail on the CW filters,
their installation, options and configuration.
Also check the Nor, Nar1, and Nar2 selectivity options for the
