Yes, I was describing the Omni-VI+.  But in order to clear the RIT/XIT,
you can't just punch the clear button or the RIT and expect them to work.
 Try it.  Key the rig on CW and try to turn off RIT or XIT.  Or, press
the clear button momentarily - it will only work if you hold it down. 
Not something you want to have to play with during a contest.    Anyway,
that was my point.  Most other rigs I've used respond immediately - there
is no guessing about whether it did what you wanted (well, except when I
push the wrong button, but we won't go into that!).
