[TenTec] Omni VI+ Relay Clicking Correction

As I recall, the only relays used in the Omni 6+ are on the low-pass filter 
board, and the reed relay used for T/R (transmit/receive).  Since the 
chatter problem manifests with the 80m panel button, it seems that if it is 
indeed induced by a relay, then the noise should be coming from the LP 
filter board.

At the very least, try opening both the top and bottom covers (4 black 
screws, each cover).  Then, inspect all the white header connectors and 
ensure they're firmly seated.  To visually access all the headers may 
require removal of the bottom aluminum plate.  The plate is fastened by both 
machine and sheet metal screws.  Apart from that, diagnosis of the root 
cause will require methodical investigation.  If you're not comfortable 
proceeding at that level of work, then it's time to contact TT's repair
