Yeah, I checked the spec's for the TT 218 (1.8KHz) and TT 220 (2.4KHz) filters, and surprisingly the insertion loss for the 218 is marginally lower (.2 dB) than that of the 220. Since my goal is to squeeze as much talk-power out at 5 w, with less concern re highy fidelity (the 4-pole filter slot on the RF/Mixer board dictates both RX and TX bandwidth), I thought the 1.8 filter worth trying. But, your suggestion is good, and I'll look for a 2.4 as well. It will be fun (maybe even educational) evaluating/comparing the two filters in the Argosy.

I think the 8 pole filter you want is the 2.4(?)KHz model 220. The other item
(well documented elsewhere) is that the AC feed from the 225 to the front
panel switch can cause hum pickup in the rig. Info on a mod to shield the
cable inside the Argosy should be posted somewhere on the web.
