Most of the Ten Tecs fit this criteria, but I'm not sure you would call anything but the Omni Five and Six as truly "competition grade." The Omni V and the original VI (pre VI Plus) had extraordinar

It's unfortunate that there is not a better way of automatically managing ALC in most radios. Although I like the ability to manually adjust drive level on the IC-7800, I think many operators just i

That depends on the 160M choking reactance and will be a function of the type of ferrite material and the number of beads used. On 160M, I would be more comfortable using a toroid design like that d
