The Omni-VI is a great contest rig - no question.
After using SO2R this weekend in SS CW with an Omni-VI Plus and an Orion, I'd wish I'd gotten off my lazy *** and taken the second Orion home out of the visitor's radio room to use instead of the other Omni. I decided I didn't want to take it down there, re-arrange the desk....I don't know what I was thinking.
I loaned my Orion to K4JNY three weeks ago so he could get some pre-contest air time on it before this fall's contest season. Jeff ran 1300+ QSO's running 15 meter single band with our new 6/6 long boom stack (erected on Oct. 17), the Orion and Titan 425 in CQ WW SSB. Went great for SS, but I had to stifle the urge to keep moving the Orion to the run band - would have been solved had I just brought the second one with me. Next time....

Almost indisputable Al!! My Orion sat silent ......I just have no confidence in it operating for 30 hours continious, with no failures. It is, as you say, personal choice/opinion. To change bandwidth, on the Plus, you punch one button and if necessary, fiddle with PBT. With the Orion, there are just too many controls to vary; if you happen to be running a high rate of Q's, turning knobs is the last thing you want to be doing. All personal choice.
