Well...There are some fanatics for and some fanatics against....

I have looked at both drift and keying. The drift is not a case, it happens
first minutes but it is not a problem after a while.

The keying is in another situation. If you look at the ociloscope it looks 
perfect. If you hear to it is not so obviouse. I must addmit it is a little

I have heard mine OmniVI on a scond radio (TR7). It sound OK, no chrip no
click no brum, but as someone said it is something in the signal. It is
very good
but sounds different. If It is for better or worse I can not tell.

I have heard yesterday W1AW on 20m , at 8 UTC and they were 569 here.
the signal was good but you could tel that it can be a TenTec.

I did talk to a YV1 station on 20m and  I noticed the same thing.

This morning I run a Phil from VA KT2Y (if i remember right) on 40m 
and he had a TenTec OmniVI as well. He was 599+10dB at max. 
His signal was very good. Could not tell it was a TenTec.

As long there are no clic, chrip, brumm I am satisfied.
