> "Apparently they are comfortable with the keying although it is in my opinion the worst on the air."
>From what I've heard on the air so far, I wouldn't categorize the Omni's
keying as being anywhere close to qualifying as the "worst on the air",
far from it. I agree, it's also not the best, which I'd like it to be.
> "Interestingly, many Omni VI owners are in the denial stage about their keying. Some say they haven't gotten bad reports so the problem doesn't exist. True, you will seldom get a bad report however, the problems still exist."
Because others don't agree with you on the severity of the problem
doesn't mean they are in denial. I had a tough time identifying what
you have described on W1AW's signal. If you had not pointed it out I
probably never would have noticed or looked for it. I'm glad you're
holding out for a better rig, but for me, I'll just enjoy the VI+ until
they come up with a solution, or with a VII. (Hmm, does that fit the
signature of a person in denial? Maybe so!)
