Further to below message. . .  All my comments about any rig pertain
only to its use on CW.  I work nothing else.

| Well, I like my Corsair II.  Prior to that I used and still use the
| Triton 544, the Omni-C and a little Argosy2.  At first the increase
| noise from the Corsair II troubled me, but by reducing the RF gain
| slightly the Corsair II becomes about as quiet as the earlier rigs
| which are quiet indeed.  I have an Autek QF-1A audio filter on the
| audio output of the Corsair -- I keep it set on 'Lowpass' with both
| knobs set at about the 9 am position and it really reduces or
| eliminates that noise.  Comparing my experience with that of the
| posters in this thread, I like the AGC of the Corsair II but I do
| use the rig for demanding tasks -- just ragchewing with a bunch of
| fellows who all run kilowatts.

| Hello, I am new to this list and am about to become the proud owner
| a Corsair II and would like to hear some comments good or bad on
| anyone elses experience with this rig. I did alot of review reading
| and narrowed my choices to either an Omni D or Corsair II but the
| Corsair's positive input won me over. I became hooked on Ten Tec
| recently with the purchase of an Argonaut 509. Comparing the
| of the Argo to my IC-706 and IC-745 the Argo won hands down. I can
| copy CW signals Q5 on the Argo that I cant even hear on the 706 and
| 745. The ole 745 went bye bye on eBay last week and my Corsair
| be here in a couple of days. Would like to hear from anyone who
| to reply. Thanks.
