But George _will_ make them if enough of us commit to buying the first 
run.  Seems to me he needed a minimum order of 10 per filter BW/IF when 
I last asked him.  If I got one for the high IF I'd want a matching one 
for the low IF, too.

The question I have, however, is this:  How well does the VBT system 
work when filters with non-standard BWs are plugged in?  (I believe the 
delta-f of each step position of the VBT knob on my 950 SDX is in 
firmware and optimized for Kenwood's standard filter bandwidths.)
