        Can't fool me!! Hi HI.  I can't for the life of me see the advantage of
the FT-1000MP(it is a nice rig) over the Omni 6+(own 2 of them so I'm
biased).  My guest op was blown away with the efficency,receiver
selectivity,and the user friendliness of the Omni 6 in a contest
environment. It all comes down the Stereo mentality, that if it has alot of
Knobs it must be better.
