3kHz would only be one channel if the person transmitting is 
splattering REALLY bad .. ;-) .. like the RigBlaster is cranked up way 
too high and the signal is almost a square wave.  PSK31 is supposed to 
fit into 31 *Hz* .. leaving a little guard band cuts down on the QRM, 
but you don't need *that* much room .. or you shouldn't ..

I guess if you were really good with the VFO (and RIT/XIT, etc.) you 
could fit one USB voice channel into the 3kHz passband, but that's 
about the only mode that would require all 3kHz .. and needless to say, 
please nobody actually TRY this ..
