maybe you are better off with a 198kHz notch filter?

Hello DK7FC Stefan,
I am seeing better SNR and more WSPR receptions in general with the
BPF in place, especially at night when the huge BBC broadcast signal
on 198kHz that's not THAT far from me becomes intrusive. During the
day there's not a lot of noticeable difference with and without the
BPF but at night I would need a lot of attenuation to stop 198kHz
swamping the receiver.
