Hi Bill,

     Are you sure that is an Omni VI and not an Omni VII? The Omni VI 
has been out of production for some years. Perhaps Ten-Tec still has one 
that has never been sold before and can legitimately be called a "demo" 
and not "used."  I think it is more likely that they would have Omni VII 
"demo" units than Omni VI.
     In any case the Omni VI is the best MF/HF CW rig I have ever owned. 
There are very few rigs with as good or better performance ratings, and 
most if not all of them are quite a bit more expensive. I have read many 
complaints on this reflector about the TX or RX audio on SSB, but I 
think they are mostly from people who do not understand the difference 
between effective communications grade audio and high fidelity audio. I 
have no complaints about it for SSB use, but I seldom use SSB.
        I cannot comment on the Omni VII, as I have only seen them in 
QST and on Ten-Tec's web site.
