I am new to this reflector and I am at a stalemate here. I just got a new
Omni VI from the folks on Dolly Parton Pkwy. I can say that I am not so
excited about it. The rig works fine however there are no filters in my
rig because they were out of stock, for the 500Hz CW filters for both
IF's. I have had a good time working people with the rig and love the
simplicity of the rig. But with no filters the rig is far from great.
So Saturday I went to a nearby Hamfest in the hopes of finding someone
with Ten-Tec filters that go with the Omni VI. I ran into a friend of
mine who has been a CW for many years and contests frequently. We got to
talking and he asked what I was there to get. I replied with the filters
and that is where it got interesting for me at least.
He described all the Ten-Tec rigs he had in the past and which ones were
truly classics, especially for CW operating. He stated that his all time
favorite to be the Corsair II. Because of simplicity and the rigs
I guess my question is this: Which Ten-Tec rig past or present is the
best overall CW rig?
All input is greatly appreciated!
