I’m about to take the plunge and order a CW filter for my FT817.
I’m a little unsure about the width of filter will best suit my needs. I didn’t do much CW when I bought the FT817 way back in April 2001 (It’s older than SOTA!), but now it’s the mode I nearly always use.
I seem to have pretty good hearing still (33yr). I’m very tempted by the 300Hz filter but I have survived with RockMites and the like for the past year and have managed OK. I like my KD1JV MTR which utilises a 4 crystal IF ladder filter with a quoted width of 500Hz.
300Hz or 500Hz?
Any advice would be appreciated!
