    i guess an option is to put the filter on it's back and hot glue it in and run short leads to the pins but..... i rather not do that if i don't have to..

    Some of these are still available. Must check with INRAD. IMHO much better than the KWD filters and come with the boards attached. Makes big difference having both IF filters installed. but they are no longer in production and supplies are dwindling rapidly.
    I know of no one that presently makes those boards( but maybe someone) unless you find someone stripping them out. I had close to $600 worth of these filters installed.
    I had both 2.4's...2.8's...6kc AM and single 1.0 CW installed...it was a great performer...
    That was one of those rigs equipped that way I should have never sold...I should have just put it on the shelve when I purchased my Yaesu FT-950. However I did sell it to a new ham basically for the price of the filters and he used it for many more years after that.
