I love it
>Here's a "HEY, SCOTT" idea that occurred to me while writing my
>post in praise of the Omni VI.
>I'd love it if TenTec offered AM receive through a low-cost 4-6 kHz
>ceramic filter and diode detector in the Omni. Other filters
>as always. Then, manufacture an outboard shortwave converter you
>attach to the AUX antenna.
>It could be a simple crystal converter for the common SWBC bands, or
>a 0.5-30 mHz synthesized converter with 500 hKz steps and output on 15
>meters. Or something like that. Such a converter could be sold to
>ham-band-only rig owners, too.
>This would give those who want it general coverage, without
>the Omni's ham-band performance or adding much to the cost of the
>radio. Scott, if you take up my idea, send me the first converter :-)
