So the 7610 that I got has 3 different filters and I can set the bandwidth and soft or sharp. A friend sent me the QST review, and I see that he mentions changing the settings from 1.2k/500/250 to 1000/350/150. So I did that, and I am pretty sure that will make me a big gun DXer. No but really, does anyone have input on these settings? When I send my QRL? I keep it wide, then usually switch it to 350 once I get an answer but frankly I haven't used 150 at all yet. I have no idea of the difference between a soft or sharp filter- I am a rank beginner with CW, so will I care at all? Still it's fun to play with these menu options. The QST article also mentions turning IP+ off to increase sensitivity, and I see that that was already done so either it is the factory default or I did it.
