Hi John W0UN (and all):

The Omni-VI and Omni-VI Plus will run QSK CW very nicely with 
the Alpha 87A.  The normally open relay jack that is used for 
keying an external linear amplifier in the Omni-VI was designed 
for non-QSK amplifier use and isn't really optimal for QSK.

Rather than repeat what's been posted elsewhere before, do a
browser point to: 


This very simple hookup uses a pickoff on the Omni-VI QSK 
keying loop through a diode to the Alpha 87A input that will 
provide both with smooth QSK keying.
