Filters and things...

Well, after using this Omni V for a few weeks now, I can say without a
doubt it is the finest radio I have ever had the pleasure of operating.
Many of you out there had told me the virtues of running a 1.8 and .500
filters cascaded together for CW work. Okay, I've tried this; what is the
advantage? I have found myself using the .250 on crowded bands instead of
the .500 & .500 combo.
Basicly what I am asking is this; (remember I'm a new HAM); how does the
two filters (1st and 2nd IF) work together? Where does the passband tuning
fit into this picture? Is the passband tuning in between the two IF's? I
have learned how to separate two signals coming thru the filters using the
passband tuning; but how does it work?
The manual also doesn't do a very good job of explaining the BP/Fade
control either. The way I understand these knobs, they are some sort of
audio passband tuning; is this correct? I've learned with these knobs I
can take a lot of background noise and hiss out of the signal; but how do
The notch filter just eliminates hetrodynes; right?
Well, this should give someone something to write about. I just hate not
knowing how something works. Thanks.
