Larry, et al,
It's been a product of their hardware for some time. I'm not
sure it might be viewed (even by them?) as a "main" product.
Larry Tyree, N6TR, writer of TRLog contest logging software has
for a long, long time wished Ten-Tec would change their code.

You need to disable the beeps in the 850. I forget if it is a
volume control inside the radio that you need to turn down - or
if it can be disabled with one of the menus.
At least that is better than having to put a piece of black tape
the front panel of the Yaesu radios!
About the Omni VI - I still wish TenTec would adopt the Kenwood
as an option. It isn't that hard to implement two command sets
let the user decide. This would open to door up to making the
VI play with TR Log as well as the 850.
Apparently, there are things in software that can and cannot be
done with the firmware the Omni VI contains. It is a bit
disconcerting to see and hear about the 'other guys' ability to
do things and the Omni VI can't (Shift keys have no effect on my
Omni VI). I guess we're back to the "better receiver"
