I have owned several modern rigs with the capability of adding both 250 Hz
and 500 Hz filters. I have found in direct comparison that 250 is too narrow
to
comfortably tune around. You might miss something good. It is great if you
are going to stay put on one frequency and if all of the stations you work are
rock steady. Remember, QRP rigs tend to drift a little. . . .
You'll loose them.
