I am really impressed with my TS-850 during CW contests.  The 500 Hz CW 
filters plus the IF tuning and notch are superb for narrowing down the 
"acceptable" bandwidth. I had no trouble chopping out the QRM from 100 Hz 
away at times. 

Maybe the complainers should get a real radio! (I'm probably preaching to 
the choir here.)  :-)
