The 500Hz wide 2nd IF CW filter (YK-88C-1) in W6UE's TS-950SDX is dying 
(it's intermittent), and I am wondering whether I should replace it with another 
YK-88C-1 or change it over to the Inrad #103 (400Hz x  8.83 MHz IF filter). 
Has anyone done this? The main application will be for contesting, so I 
don't want anything too narrow in there as this will be the only CW filter 
available in the 8.83 MHz IF (e.g. 2nd IF). We have both 500Hz and a 270Hz 
wide filters in the 3rd IF if we need to kick in a more narrow filter to pull 
out a weak one during a run.
