Just bought an OMNI V Friday night and installed a full compliment of
filters today (bought them new from TT in anticipation of getting the O/V).
I noticed while testing on 40M that I was getting 99 watts output at the
fully clockwise power setting, and approximately 3.5 watts at the fully
counter-clockwise power setting. I suppose I'll have to look inside to see
if a QRP mod has been done. But I was rather surprised and pleased to
learn that the rig came QRO/QRP ready.
Incidentally, I checked with the ARP ARCI folks and discovered that I am
still on the books as member number 603. How about them apples?
This is my first OMNI V. Have owned in the past an OMNI VI (had to sell
it--too bad), Corsair II, Corsair I, OMNI D Series B, Triton IV, and
Let's see, what else. Oh, I'm looking for a clean, used 961/962 ps.
Gee, my wife went to PA Saturday for a week with one of the kids and left
me with a new radio. That is the definition of havin' fun! 73,
