That does not sound like good advice.
Without more than your "memory" of
a possible problem you sorta, but not
really recall... that is a pretty draconian
solution for what might be a simple
You are just fishing for ideas, and have
no way to verify your hunch, being so
far detached from the field detail.
I know lots of guys who use those radios
in close proximity w=with other radios in
- for contesting, etc. - with no problems
like your friends are reporting.

I appears to me, you are leaping to
conclusions with very little hard data.
You may be right... but I don't think you can
prove it on the data presented here.
WE HAD THE SAME PROBLEMS WITH OUR
TEN-TEC AND ELECRAFT RADIOS... BUT
YOU DID NOT SEEM TO THINK THE RADIOS
WERE AT FAULT THEN... and did not
suggest we get new radios... even though
you had no better solution than band pass
filters. I guess on the same argument, we
should be selling all our TT gear because
they make noise in the Elecraft ears...
No... I think the Jury is still out on this
