Hooray!! Hats off to Bill for setting this up!
I was glad to see this, as most of my (admittedly short) ham career
has been spent operating TenTecs. Plus, I'm a buy American guy anyway
whenever I can, and haven't found any good reason yet to buy any radio
equipment other than TenTec and Collins. (Oh yeah, plus my ANCIENT
National NC-183 receiver I picked up about 20+ years ago.)
I've still got my trusty old Omni D with optional
external VFO parked at the home QTH (sorry Ron! Wish I had an extra
that I could part with, it sure is handy and I use it a lot).
Plus my Dad, W5SBE, has a Omni V and Titan that are a joy to
Only question here is which of us is going to break down first
and buy an Omni VI? The main reason I haven't done it already
is that I keep hoping they'll come out with an optional external
VFO for the Omni VI, just like my Model 243 for the Omni D. (This
is my only big problem with the V and VI - I really use that 2nd VFO
Sooo, anybody have any word as to whether TenTec plans to offer such?
Or if a future Omni VII might have it?
Also, are they planning to market a replacement for the Titan? A TT
fellow I spoke with on the phone a couple of months ago, when confronted
with this question, muttered something about 'new amps under development'
but declined to mention any specifics, model names, etc...
OK, what else? Oh yeah, I submitted my order one of the 400 Hz
cw filters, but haven't heard from Ron, GW3YDX, yet on where to
mail the check... probably shoulda ordered 2, as I guess I could
use it in my Omni D also!
