And you never will, Don.  Our regulators aren't too concerned about any 
excessively wide AM'ers; there are so few of us.  A 6khz BW requires a 3 khz 
max response in the audio chain.  Most guys up here are about 4 khz 
response.  So long as we don't bother anyone. the IC don't care, so long as 
we employ proper engineering standards, and don't splatter.  Personally, 
when required, I use a Bailey Engineering 3.5 kc  brick wall filter.
