This is all good stuff but I have one burning question. How come all Omni
6's dont sound bad? Or what little quirk makes such a big difference?
Furthermore, why does it take such a drastic mod on some and not all Omni
If and it's a big IF....some OMni 6's sound so good....then HOW COME???
Here's something I've observed which are hard to explain. The sound of an
Omni 6's keying on the receiving end is affected by:
1. Band conditions
2. type of receiver
3. cw speed
When band conditons are poor the chirp is not noticible.
A Ja receiver with ringy xtal filters tends to smooth out the bad keying.
Listening to a 6 on my 5 almost always sounds bad.
QRQ speeds of 40+ wpm sound better.
Pauld , have you any ideas? Could this be something to do with the tx
filter bandwidth you mentioned?
