Thanks Wayne and George, I hadn't considered using the presets in combination with xfil to help navigate different filtering options. Handy that they are per band and per mode. Also, the VFO1/2 trick is cool. The other various DSP techniques are very interesting (NR and APF)...guess there is no need for the outboard Timewave DSP from my previous rig :D.
I don't have a kpod, but the discussion between Dave and Bill has whet my appetite. Thanks all for the great tips! This sort of feedback really helps a newbie to get the most out of this great platform. 73, Dave VE5UO On Fri, Apr 6, 2018 at 11:44 AM, Wayne Burdick <n...@elecraft.com> wrote: > Hi Dave, > > There are various ways to control bandwidth on the K3S.
