Hi John..
I was unimpressed with the IMD characteristics of the Pro3 using it on  cw 
in the harsh contest environment.  I had the INRAD Roofing Filter Mod  added 
to the radio, and it helped considerably, but the radio still  had 
noticeable IMD issues.  I sold my modified Pro3 and invested the $$ in  a K3.  It 
was a smart move.  The K3 may not be as sexy looking as the  Pro3, but it has 
absolutely no IMD problems.
John, W8FJ...

How does  the Icom 756PRO do under heavy CW QRM?  Some of the eham.net 
reviews  weren't very flattering in terms of CW performance.
