The roofing filter mod/addition from INRAD does not require any soldering
except for power. The rest of the connections are all provided for with mini
coax and plugs on the filter accessory board. A very straightforward and
easy installation. SMD has nothing to do with the installation, so not to
worry, Gary. T's a very well thought out and designed addition that is worth
every penny. Installation takes a maximum of a half hour.

I understand that as the VI+ evolved, some boards were constructed  
with SMD technology.  Does anyone know if the RF board (underside of  
rig near finals unit) was built with SMDs in later rigs?  If I do  
acquire a late model Plus, I would want to install the InRad roofing  
filter but am not anxious if it means soldering onto a SMD board.  My  
past experiences do not inspire much confidence.    : )

tnx, Gary W7TEA
