This feature is also available on my Corsair II when using an external
VFO. In fact, on the Corsair II/external VFO setup you have a "fader" 
control, which varies the relative audio output of the two frequencies
that you hear.  As Steve says, I find this feature invaluable when
working big pile-ups.  I don't know why something like this was not
designed into the Omni VI; it's probably the one reason I haven't 
upgraded to that rig.
