I use the Paragon Uno but performance is also exceptional with the 250 Hz
filter on and the Switched Capacitor AF filter on max selectivity. I use it
in this configuration when I surf the 5 KHz wide CW pileups (calling ME!)
from EU. Don't try that with an overseas box on RIT! I'm curious to see what
will happen when the sun spots come back!
