Amen and Amen to the Ten-Tec claims.. He is right. i am the proud owner
of an Omni VI, Hercules, Scout, and Auto Tuner. I'm not in the 68 wpm
class, but I hold my own at 20. I too love CW, and have a friend here
that is 85 years (young?) and still goes about 55 - 60 wpm.  God Bless
them. You won't be sorry buying a Ten-Tec anything, Scott.
