I am using this configuration since AO-40 era i cannot remember when i was using an 145 IF if i was getting some desense but i think not as 
i was using to individual radio. The main reason why i keep the 123 IF is due to the Yeasu FT-847 who cannot transmit at 123MHZ. This save 
my AIDC downconverter from any accidental TX in it.
