Dennis -

I'll confess to having blundered and transmitted into my ICE BP
filter with the xcvr set on one band and the filter on another a few
times - fortunately, with no ill effects.

I have one radio set up for autoswitching of the filters but the
other needs to be manually changed; sometimes difficult for me to
remember to do during those brain-dead times in a contest. You would
think that the low receive signal levels would give me a clue...

I imagine that SWR and other factors have an effect on whether or
not such blunders do any permanent damage to the BP filters. As
always YMMV.
