Use an adaptive line enhancer which is simply a narrow bandpass filter.
You can implemt it with the LMS (Least Mean Square).  You will need to 
calculate the autocorrelation function and a crosscorrelation function between
the desired output and the actual input.  See a book by Widrow and Stearn, 
"Adaptive Signal Processing."

hopes this help.

              Just say NO to VMS!!
