Dave, I've been using the Omni 5 fer 3 yrs here. By far the best cw rig
ever in this
shack. I have had over 35 rigs at one time or another over 19 years of
The Omni 5 has no rit, however it has a beautiful split vfo for that. I
use my split
daily. I just hit the a=b button and then hit split and bang your ready.
that and really no need for the extra space on the face for a rit control.
the best thing about my Omni 5 is the fantastic sound quality that it hears
air. I have yet to find a rig that compairs to the rx audio. A cw only
here so that is my 2 cents worth. I am sure the omni 6 has the same things
have not had the opportunity for that rig yet. From what Ten Tec told me
thing that I would gain from changing to the omni 6 would be more buttons and
dsp. Other than that, this is the same rig. Good luck
