This is a very subjective topic as there are huge differencies in peoples'
hearing. What's good to my ear may be just horrible to someone else.
I have the 500Hz CW filters for both receivers, in all IF's. I don't need to go
any narrower than that. Go too narrow in a pile-up and you won't hear all
stations calling you....rather learn the "cocktail party listening" style, you
may hear a variety of signals but you can concentrate on listening just one and
use RIT as necessary.
I'm a CW-guy, so my MkV is still in stock condition for SSB. I'm planning to
put in the 1.8kHz filters since my scope mainly is in contesting and even 2.1k
is too wide on a crowded band.
Again, this is just my preference, would be interesting to hear others as well.

Subject: [Yaesu] FT1000MP MarkV Filters
Just took delivery of my FT1000MP Mark V. What an awesome radio! Having great
fun learning all the things it can do. My question is about which optional
filters to get. I operate abot 80/20 CW/SSB and about 40% DX 40% contesting and
20% ragchew. What has been your experience with the optional filters. If you
were starting fresh which would you install and which would you pass on? Thanks.
