Would someone would be kind enough to specify to me what is the proper filter to use to improve the SSB reception on my Kenwood R5000 ? Right now, the one inside is the YK 88S....and it doesn't seem to be easily removable...hish...

Thanks,
M.D.

Improve how? The YK-88S1 is a 2.4Khz filter. They made 2.1 and 1.8Khz filters. There would be some loss of fidelity with these filters. Useful in crowded band conditions, perhaps. There were also after market filters by International Radio. You can find theses filters on e-bay and numerous discussions on line.

Well, after reading quite a bit on the subject, I guess I'll go with the YK-88A-1 AM filter. It should improve the listening experience at large.
