Hi Eric (and the group):
We're listening - and we'd be interested to hear what features you'd
like to see on a rig in that price range. While we have no plans
at the moment to come out with a new HF rig, having a handy list of
features desired from hams that already are familiar with us would
be a great resource.
Eric also makes mention of what's "not" on the Omni-VI+ that you'd
like to see included in a top-of-the-line HF rig; I'd be glad to
hear those comments as well.
