SCAF-1 is "OK" but not great  Time owned: more than 12 months
I've had my SCAF-1 for over 10 years. Building it was no big deal. For a filter its "fair" but gets no prizes. Here's the problem: it's an audio filter so annoying signals that infringe on the tuned signal can still get through and affect the quality of the filtered signal. This is an inherent issue with audio filters: the transceiver/receiver still lets the adjacent signals to get through and if they're strong enough they affect the signal (CW) you wish to copy. Nothing can eliminate adjacent signals that you want to remove like an IF filter. That's why I rate the SCAF-1 as just "OK". 
Product is in production.
