Thanks for the evaluation, Paul.  I was hoping to see a comparison
between the Pegasus and the Omni VI Plus or the Kachina, and got both!
Especially happy to hear about the CW/QSK performance, although we
wouldn't expect less from T-T.

Right now, I'm too busy enjoying my new Omni VI Plus to be serious
about buying a Pegasus.  But, for a bit over $1K (including the
remote tuning knob/keypad - I'm not ready to give that up yet!)
it sounds like money well spent.
