There were minor circuit differences between my 544 and Omni-C blankers. 
The Omni-C blanker did not work nearly as well.  I set the schematics 
side-by-side and made the Omni-C correspond.  Seems it was more like minor 
rewiring but it has been a looooong time ago (and I've slept since then).  I 
do recall that it was an easy project -- probably not taking more than an 
hour of a lazy man's time.  I can dig out the manuals and send schematics 
and images of the physical board layout (components, but not the traces). 
If I had the gumption, I could pull the boards and scan the traces, I 

I would guess that Ten-Tec would give their blessing to your effort.
