The original message thread was entitled  "[TenTec] modifying Omni V for QRP
?"  How did it change to "Omni VI?  Did you manually enter or change it?

Dan's question related to a modification on the Omni V, not Omni VI.  The
stock Omni V is only capable of reducing its power to approximately 15
watts.  Paul Clinton, Ten-Tec's Service Manager, advises to replace R46 on
the 9 MHz Filter Board from 100K-ohm to10K-ohm @ 1/4 watt.  This brings the
Omni V's minimum output level to QRP.
