Normally, it would be the reverse of the above.  You can null out a CW tone 
in the midst of an audio reception, BUT, since the audio signal is at least 
2.5 kHz wide, some of the audio frequencies will slide thru the narrowest 
filter used for CW, and cause consternation and gnashing of teeth... plus 
hammering of fists on table and uttering of FCC prohibited profanity!  :-)
