Scout & Omni VI+. I thought this would make an interesting thread. What
I am asking the group to do is to summarize what features they would see
included in an imaginary TenTec rig in the $1200 to $1400 range. The
competition would include the 706, DX70 & DX77, FT100, TS570D, FT920, and
The rules are simple. Just post to the group a features list for the
pretend rig. Include any narrative that explains why you chose those
features TenTec is famous for, features TenTec hasn't included in the
past, and why you left out certain items in the current top rig, the Omni
Why bother to reply? Well, TenTec has certain strengths over the
competition, and it will be interesting to see which of those strengths
show up as being more important in this day of ever-increasing
computer-oriented features. In addition, it should be fun to compare the
features list with past rigs. The ideal mid-range rig may already exist.
Lastly, it should be just plain fun.
