Yaesu FT857 With YF-122S Mechanical Collins 2,3 Khz SSB Filter




What do you think about this video?

beverpix: I have the 2.3 Collins in both the 897D and the 817nd and the difference is MUCH bigger than in this video. Compared between stock ceramic and Collins it sounds like a totally different tranceiver (on both rigs!). The filter is worth its money 100% 73's!

kees konings: hoor weinig verschil .

0ndrous: For what application? For Rag-chew, absolutely! Get the 2.9KHz from INRAD. For DXing the Collins 2.3KHz is great but you might not feel it's enough improvement to justify the cost. For contesting definitely get the 2.0KHz.

0ndrous: Having purchased an FT-857D with both filters (factory & 2.3) I do notice improvement in both selectivity and sound quality, & though not a major difference, it is an improvement and up to you if it's worth the $. I'm springing for the 2.9 filter because I've heard a friend's 857D with a recent 2.9 upgrade and now it sounds as full & rich as an Icom Pro3, using the stock hand mic with a condenser element modification. I'm more of a Rag-Chewer than a contester, though I do enjoy DXing, too. 73

Antoine F4HJG: Try on LSB and listen the difference, Inrad have a filter 2.9 khz the difference is rely impressive

9m2pju: i will go for CW filter only.

crnazvijezda: Nice video! It looks like filter is not worth the money :( very sad but happy because I didn't spend money

berny bord: its true for the price the difference its very little iven you cant hear it some time.. bernard
