817 Filter for CW / Digi  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Absolutely! I have a 300Hz filter in my little 817 and WOW what a huge difference. With this filter, the FT-817 is transformed from a usable CW rig to a very good CW rig.

Required for CW  Time owned: more than 12 months
CW is a pleasure on the FT-857 with the filter installed. Not only is it practically required for CW, but digital modes (RTTY, especially) greatly benefit from the additional filtering. Installation is a 10 minute job (and that includes taking your time and wearing an anti-static strap for added safety) and only requires a screwdriver.
