Re: FT-817 Question

 Mine work's fine without the filters. I work SSB and PSK31 mostly with
it. I use it as my travel radio, run a 44' dipole out the window are
along the rail at the motel. Work's great on PSK31, I have 22 countries
QRP from the hotel. I don't do much CW, so I don't know about the
necessity of the filter their. Word on the SIG is that it's hard to
notice the difference! with or without the filters. I do know that it
isn't a good SSB sat radio as it isn't full-duplex. I do use it
occasionally on the FM bird's, it works well there as the tuning
resolution on fm is  10hz. There is a user group at www.egroups.yahoo.com
, look for ft817 and ft-817.  It's a nice rig to take along camping or on
