I recently bought a used 706 to take with me on trips and have found it to be 
a very nice compact rig, but with just the SSB standard filter in it, it is 
pretty wide for CW. Unfortunately, INRAD does not make a CW filter for it.

ICOM makes several filters that would do the trick.  My gut feeling is to go 
with the FL-100 which is a 500 Hz filter, although they do make a 350 Hz and a 
250 Hz.  I generally have liked the way 400-500 Hz filters have sounded in my 
other rigs, and have found the 250 Hz too "ringy" for my ears.

Any thoughts and experiences with the 706's various CW filters?
