But it's gonna be worth the wait! I've had an Omni 6 for six years and just got 
it converted to the Plus. Will be interesting to hear your opinion after you 
have operated the radio for a few months.

Don't be too disappointed when you plug in your Heil headset. Heil headsets are 
designed to work with audio voltage type outputs like the Kenwoods. Icom and 
TenTec radios do not drive the headphones with very loud audio.

The pin connections for the micraphone are: Pin 1 = audio;  Pin 2 = Ground;  
Pin 3 = PTT; and Pin 4 = VDC. If you plan on using VOX only, then of course you 
only need to hook up pins 1 and 2.

If you ordered the power supply, the DC cable and connector are an intergal 
part of the power supply. Otherwise you just get a blank connector that fits 
the back of the Omni.
