>>I have an Omni VI Plus that is a suspected static discharge victim. In
>> its current state the receiver is fully functional and works just fine.
>> The transmitter puts our little or no power with associated reduced
>> current draw on the power supply and odd Po readings on the panel power
>> meter. The little or no power output has been confirmed with an
>> independent power meter. Ten-Tec originally repaired this unit with
>> identical symptoms by replacing the drivers, finals and PIN diodes on
>> the BPF/Front End Board. The unit failed again shortly after the
>> original Ten-Tec repairs. Ten-Tec now suspects further problems with
>> PIN diodes and / or an OP Amp in the SWR circuit that apparently
>> provides feedback to the RF circuits. Ten-Tec declared this unit as
>> "not economically repairable" and subsequently I filed a homeowners
>> claim on the unit therefore Ten-Tec will not perform any further service
>> work on the rig.
>> I have neither the time nor test equipment to dig into component level
>> repair myself. I'm looking for someone knowledgeable and experienced
>> with Ten-Tec Omni VI+ servicing who would be willing to take a look at
>> the rig. Please contact me off line of the reflector and let me know
>> your experience and bench rates. I can then discuss in more detail what
>> I know / don't know about the rig and its issues.
