I agree with Tim Logan about the value of the OMNI's. Mine has its quirks, 
but it still is a top gun CW rig. In fact, last year I had cash in hand to 
sell it after I acquired a Japan Radio JST-245 (which beats the OMNI hands 
down on SSB) but when the time came to ship off the OMNI, I just couldn't 
bring myself to part with such a hot CW rig. I returned the money to the 
would-be purchaser. I had some explaining to do to my wife about that.

        Now I have acquired a used Yaesu 1000MP Mark V which is due to arrive 
Monday. There will be a two-three month face-off between the Mark V and the 
OMNI. One will have to go. I would not place any bets on the outcome at 
this point (do I really need dual receivers?).
