I rented John Travolta's movie "Phenomenon" last weekend.

In a scene, Forest Whitaker (as WB6QLF) was calling CQ (SSB) on 10.
The rig looked like a TT Paragon....Then Travolta appeared and was 
able to copy RTTY, then AMTOR, in his head.
Not bad, then he had Whitaker respond using a straight key....

I knew TT gear was good, but now I'm really impressed!!!!!

So, I tried to send RTTY and AMTOR with a straight key on my OMNI-VI 
( the TNC was off)....no luck!!!

Do you think TT will include this amazing capability in a future 
firmware upgrade for the OMNI???

Happy Thanksgiving to all
