Re: [Elecraft_K3] SSB Filters, 1.8khz or 2.1khz, can't decide

Hi Bob,

IMHO, I prefer the closest thing that matches your voice without any heavy lows.  Check out your voice on a audio spectrum analyser and see where you are.  If your are a bass, you will sound terribly restricted with a 1.8.  If you are a tenor, 2.1 will be a good match and give you the "boost" for the "occasional" contest.  There I said it, hi.

For SSB I have the 2.8khz filters in the K3 and the sub receiver. I want to add add'l narrower
filters, but I am in a quandry. Get the 1.8KHZ 8 pole or the 2.1KHZ 8 pole? I read some of the threads on this but still not sure. Any feedback on the difference from anyone that has tried both ? I do casual hamming on SSB but also do contests.
