We designed the KDSP2 to improve ultimate SSB filter ultimate rejection in the K2. The KDSP2, with its brick wall SSB filter settings, when cascaded after the KSB2 filter, totally eliminates any residual leakage from strong signals outside the passband. It also tightens the net filter shape

Oops! - I missed one point in your email. Yes, the above board mounting of the KSB2 reduces ultimate rejection due to its longer ground return paths. But as you noted, with 80 dB of ultimate rejection, following it with the KDSP2 kills any residual blow by. A number of the $3K and above DSP

Hi Adi, There must be something wrong with your K2 or measurement set up. As can be seen from the phase noise plot on our web page (under radio comparisons) the K2 TX signal is better than -130 dBc when you get 10-20 kHz away from the carrier. Also, what b/w and span were you using on your
