Vernon -- I have an Omni VI, but the IF chains are similar I think. I
also run mostly CW and the 500 Hz filter in the 9 MHz IF makes a BIG
difference in the background noise, especially on the low bands. I
rarely use the 250 Hz filter, since I like to hear a little each side of
the operating frequency. So, my advice would be to spend your money on
the 9 Mhz 500 Hz filter.
