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,
