Except for the lack of RIT, you will find the Omni V to be a great rig. I recently installed a mod so that you can use the PTT while running CW. This is useful when you want to bypass the QSK temporarily so your amplifier relay doesn't drive you crazy. Ten Tec had to dig for the circuit, but they eventually found it and mailed to me. It is a simple mod and it works well. Good luck with the Omni V.
