Depends on if one wants a ham band receiver and transmitter or a general 
coverage transmitter and receiver.  The Paragon II basically follows the 
protocol for the Omni V as I believe that Carl, N4PY, did the firmware for 
the Paragon II and the Omni V.

I've had both the Paragon II and the Omni VI Plus on the desk at the same 
time for several years.  As to the Omni V compared to the Omni VI Plus, I'd 
opt for the RX performance of the Omni VI Plus over the Omni V.  But again, 
one must consider the general coverage product vs. the ham band only

As much as we all complain about ebay, you can "buy it now" a omni V for 

Personally, I’d go with the Omni V before the paragon II

There again, it’s so much a personal thing.
