For several months my OMNI V was off frequency from the readout by about 10 to 15 cycles. Just enough for contacts to mention having to use RIT. I installed the N4PY chip which allows me to bring display and output together. The new chip made this a very different and enjoyable radio and the off freq. nuisance was gone.
Lately, there has been a freq. jump when changing bands. The calibration is not holding. The long term stability is good if left on one band. The only work I have done is tighten screws on logic board and reset connectors. No improvement.
My only thoughts are: Y1 crystal, VFO encoder. Not sure beyond those as possibilities.
Any input will be appreciated.
