Re: Omni VII Plus, QSO


The new front panel was due to previous owners destroying the die for the original requiring a remake. I got that from xenia hamvention the first year it was held there. Ten Tec was one of my main stops on the list. We spoke to two men at the booth and they said that they were going to replace the panel with metal.

Has anyone thought to ask 10 tech why they put the metal panel on the new Omni 7+? I hear lots of theories and doubts going around. In my experience 10 tech is willing to talk to hams.

I must be lucky. I don't hear any noise from my O7 on my eagle or my Orion 2. It is equally as quite on receive as the other two radios. I was shocked by the claim the metal front plate made it quiter. Or maybe my hearing is worse than I think.

I am a bit interested in the statement by Ten Tec's owner about the O7 Plus, that it is quieter due to the new front panel and the shielding it provides.  I have recently been suffering from some rfi on two meters.  This appears to be generated by the display on my FT-991a, and entering my transverter, which will need to be moved now from it's current position in the station to reduce the problem.  I wonder just how much noise the O7's display generates, and where it is in the spectrum.
