Retired, but somehow working harder now...

Hello all. Well, I just got home and found my UPS box from Scanner Master waiting for me. I wanted to take a moment to share my first impression with my new notch filter. First, the cons. There are no mounting tabs on the case in order to mount it to a rack with screws, it only comes with 4 adhesive pads on the back. Second, and most annoying, the front of the filter, which in the website photo shows what looks like a rotary indicator, is actually a STICKER! A STICKER! Here I am thinking I would actually be able to see where I was tuning this thing. However, the pros, IMHO, outway the cons. First, it is a solid piece, made from die cast aluminum. Second, it is variable. Using my PRO-500 with the Win500 Monitor/Control, I was able to tune the filter to eliminate overload interference from a local FM station blasting away my VHF-Hi reception. Third, and most importantly, IT WORKS! I am receiving better on ALL bands, not just the VHF-Hi. I welcome comments and questions. I hope my little review is informative.
