There are three versions of OmniVI firmware. Each acts a bit differently from 
a radio communications point of view. That is why some work with the Icom 
error preventing measures put on with V6.72 and some don't. The Ten Tec 
section of the code needs some further special attention. I tried to bypass 
the Icom fixes for Omnis, but did not get it right.
