Thanks for the tip. An example of "ham engineering" at its finest!
However, as you said you only had the radio a few months (and did not
say which Omni VI that you had), you may not be familiar with the following:
If you have an early set (not an "option 1-2-3 version"), there is a
button on the very upper right of the push button cluster labeled "DIM".
This is to set the digital display and S-meter brightness. Press the
"DIM" button and use the up and down arrows to choose a brightness level
to your liking between 1 and 15.
If you have an Option 1-2-3 radio, the 'DIM' button was replaced with
the 'ST' (side tone) button, so do the following:
Press 'Lock' for two seconds.
The display will then say 'Choose'
Press '1' for menu 1
Then rotate the main tuning knob until 'int' appears; this stands for
Use the up and down arrows to choose a level of brightness between 1 and 15
Press 'Lock' twice to save and exit
Hope this helps.
