Amen to that. I did Tom's mod in the lab and it provided the perfect solution in terms of bandwidth reduction. However my QRQ buddies started to complain about my too soft keying claiming  my dots and dashes sounded like washed together. After listening to it on the air myself I removed the mod. I plan to revisit the issue and choose components to give somewhat steeper rise.
