My experience on 160M says otherwise Tony.  My previous highly touted rig 
just folded up when another station 5 miles distant was anywhere on the cw 
subband and my Beverage pointed in that general direction.  The performance 
difference between 120dB and 140+dB BDR is quite significant in such 

I would welcome (and purchase) an HF rig optimized for operating in tough 
band condx (narrow roofing filter?).  I'll take better xtal filtering and 
gain distribution over dsp, am/fm & bells/whistles anyday.
