I'm not sure what RF filters from Radio Shack you may be talking about. In general today's HF radios don't produce "splatter" (usually caused by excessive drive or ALC) if tuned up properly. It is possible you could interfere with radios and TV's because of the higher power (100 watts) because some of those devices are not manufactured to reject 100 watt transmitters that are close by. In this case filters would not help but reducing the power might.
