Thanks for the responses to my recent posting. Now, let me put the inquiry in
a different form in light of what I've learned recently.
I am seeking to purchase a Paragon or Omni V or even an Omni VI in good shape
from either Ten Tec or a private owner.
Please let me know which specific filters your rig currently contains.
I am not particularly interested in matching power supplies, keyers,
transverters, etc. I wouldn't mind having a matching TenTec microphone or
complementary non-TenTec mike, though.
General coverage reception is less important to me than a rig with super CW
reception capability. SSB is an attendant but secondary issue. I am
primarily concerned about the filters currently installed in your previously
I also would like impressions about whether or not the OMNI V/VI receiver is
significantly more useful on a practical basis for use on the amateur bands
only than the Paragon receiver.
What are your various impressions of the rigs I've mentioned, most
specifically in terms of reception?
I have owned TenTec rigs in the past from the 540 to the Argosy I, Delta 580
and on to the Omni C. I still have the Argosy I which served me as a mobile
rig until a year or so ago.
Any and all responses will be appreciated.
