Here are my measured data for four ICE filters. Used HP generator 
and spectrum analyzer. These data are at least 3 years old. All but 
one of the BCB filters were hamfest purchases.

I've had variable success with QC from ICE. Both of the VHF filters 
I bought from the factory several years ago were significantly out 
of alignment. I returned them and they fixed them (or sent me fixed 

I just received a pair of new ICE 419B's (the switchable units). 
Haven't had time to measure them yet. A quick SWR check suggests 
that one of them is mis-tuned a bit on a couple of bands, while the 
other looks fine. I'll post data when I have it.
