Omni 6 + rx in a Delta II case. And bring back the Omni V audio filter.
To be more realistic for a $1200-$1400 range, the Delta II was close. Need a
somewhat better rx with built-in dsp, an Omni 6 computer interface. A
built-in tuner would be nice (like the 570D). The bottom line for me would
be features very similar to the 570D, but built by Ten Tec.
