Hi Ron,
On my Omni D with the original external VFO, I have never heard a 
station with both freqs selected that I could not hear on the single 
rcv mode. In fact, it seems to slightly lessen the sensitivity when
I have two freqs on rcv at the same time - if there is a station right
at the noise level, then he usually disappears into the noise when 
I select dual rcv. Also, I have never noticed any feedthru from the 
second VFO if it is not selected.

I also have a question that I would like to ask the other

I mentioned the other day that if the Omni V or VI
would offer the dual freq rcv capability, I would go out and buy one.
I am wondering if there is any way to modify the V or VI to add this 
capability. They already have two VFOs, does it just need an 
additional mixer??? Anybody have any idea if this can be done on the 
V and VI? As I said, I really love the dual rcv capability and 
won't give it up, but I don't have room on my desk for two rcvrs!
