FWIW, my experience in the CQ SSB and the ARRL SS was as follows. A
barefoot OMNI VI gave me everything I needed and more in the CQ SSB.
Amazing performance on both receive and transmit. A modified FT-920 and the
OMNI VI tied in the SS for CW receiver performance. On CW, I find the
FT-920 generally easier to use--more amenities--but the OMNI VI is always
there to step in if/when needed.|
How strange that after four years of diddling with a bunch of transceivers
(not including the PRO II or the Orion) I end up with the Omni VI and the
(modified) FT-920 sitting side by side and the others either sold or up for
I use two Carolina Windoms up about 45 feet from a QTH 150 feet over the
Potomac River, about half a mile inshore on the Virginia side across from
St. Clement's Island. Based on my experience, I think there is something to
the notion of location, location, . . .
