Hey, Wil, nice analysis and conclusion! Two comments:
Ten-Tec rigs have a long half-life. The older Omnis and Corsairs, etc.,
are still in demand by users, not just collectors. The Omni V and
Jupiter fit my operating style very well, except for mobile and travel.
Warning: Sooner or later a color-dot war will erupt and rage on for
awhile. Some TT logos on rigs, tuners, amps, and so on have a classic
reddish dot of varying shades. Some have a plain dot. Hams like to
compared notes ("mine's redder than yours") and it's pretty harmless.
Just means there's nothing else to talk about. If you get a rig with a
plain dot and want a red one, just cut out a little dot and stick it
on. No big deal. You think I'm kidding? Just wait.
Good luck. You'll be a good addition to the world of ham radio.
