That may be your opinion, but when I went shopping for a rig I checked
friends with Ten Tec's and one who had an Omni-V had a very strong
opinion of the S7 birdie on 28.025 MHz - smack on the 10m calling freq (I
think I'm remembering the freq right).  He was also displeased with the
response from TT that nothing could be done about it.  Otherwise his
opinion of the rig was high, but, to him, this was a significant
detractor.  It *was* a problem (and this was when the sunspot cycle
allowed a lot of DXing on 10m).  My opinion might not be the same, but
for someone who chased DX seriously on 10m, it was a problem for him.
