If you are serious about CW contesting go for the 250Hz filter. It takes a
bit of getting used to . When I am "running" on freq I use the RIT to jog
back and forth a few 10's of Khz to get the guys who haven't figured out
how to zero beat with a transceiver. When I am in S&P mode I use the fine
tunning setting (1khz/ turn versus 10khz/turn) on my TS-850 so that I
don''t tune over someone too quickly with the narrow filter.
