[TenTec] Pegasus, old and young dudes

Gary, I have some big gun contesters close by.
They will overload the dsp on my Pegasus. The
selectivity is only 8kHz without the dsp filters.
My Drake R-8 has switched capacitor filters.
They do better. The best is a crystal filter on the
first or second IF. That costs a lot.
I am happy with my Pegasus.
Regards, Jim W7ANF
