The Omni-C was the first to have bandswitch positions marked for all three 
WARC bands.  Those markings were deceptive because operation on the 17 meter 
band caused spurious emissions.  This is because of the frequency mixing 
scheme used and that scheme is identical to the Omni-A, Omni-D and Omni-B.
