Don K4KYV hasn't been back on the forum, so I will say that he has a 3400 Hz 
filter in his audio chain that has a sharp cutoff right at 3400. He bought 
it from a surplus dealer in D.C. in the '70's for $5.00 or so. He commented 
on here that he wish he has bought all the guy had, because they are 
unobtainable now.
