  1. I love my Omni VII !!

    Posted by Dave, W9cmd on 22nd Nov 2013

    I upgraded to an Omni VII from an Omni VI about 4 years ago. Having had the radio for quite a while, I'll say I'm completely satisfied. I've owned all the Omni's since the early 80's, including the Corsair and enjoyed each one of them. In particular, TT radios are American made, and that means a lot to me. Having said that, I've used many other rigs from time to time, Mostly Yaesu's and Icoms. All are good radios for the hobby, but I find that the service after the sale is the deciding point for me. Whether by phone, or in person, they are simply the best group of people to work with.

    As for the Omni VII, I find it extremely intuitive to operate, and it has all the features you need for CW, Digital or Phone operating. I particularly like the PBT/BW and DSP controls. I typically run the RF gain at 50% or less. Simply said, signals do "pop out of the noise by reducing the RF gain, while keeping the AF gain at a comfortable level.


  2. OH HOW I LOVE MY OMNI VII

    Posted by Richard Schmidt K7NSW in Idaho on 30th Mar 2013

    Bought it new a few years ago with cw filters and 10-15 meter module. On Field Day I use the other brands - usually current model rigs, all made in distant foreign countries. Then I go home, look at my American designed and built Omni VII, and say to myself "Oh you dear sweet radio. How I love you". What more can I say? How about this? If you could know what I know, then you would buy a Ten-Tec rig.


  3. New Ten Tec customer

    Posted by Jim Spragg, W8LGZ on 16th Jan 2013

    Toured TT factory this past September and was very impressed! I determined right then I would soon own a Ten Tec. Here it is, Jan 2013, Omni VII on the console! Great rig, love the ease of use and easy to navigate menu system. It all works like a charm. If you haven't tried Ten Tec, do your self a favor...do it!! Now to get an Eagle by year's end.


  4. I meant to give five stars.

    Posted by chris kirk kg4gsx on 11th Jan 2013

    Pushed da wrong button. ten tec always five stars!


  5. Omni VII is the best.

    Posted by John Hurt KI on 7th Jan 2013

    I have owned the Omni VII for only two months, but have used it for SSB, PSK31, and RTTY thus far. The receiver is the best of all of the rigs I have used. I can dig weak signals out of a pileup with less than optimal antenna situation. The filters and NR are extremely easy to use and are very effective. Setting the radio for PSK31 and RTTY are so simple to do. The antenna tuner works especially well also. I have found nothing about this radio to complain about. The sales staff at the factory store were very helpful in selection of microphone, power supply, and cables.


  6. digipan omni VII and windows 7

    Posted by chris kirk kg4gsx on 18th Oct 2012

    having problems getting your windows 7 machine to trip the transmitter running digipan? well, me too untill this week. after trying every conceivable combination of mixer parameters and a call to Stan at ten tec, we decided that the problem may lie in my 712 sound card interface cable. i stopped by and interrupted a pow wow between john henry and stan and we checked my 712 (checked ok) and then further discussed my delima. after a short while of "didja try?......yes... john suggested right clicking on the digipan icon and clicking on "run as administrator" . off to the shack and 2 minuites later, im working an mm in the middle of the atlantic with 25 watts into a very outta tune vert antenna. thanks john and stan!!!!


  7. Makes it FUN to get on air instead of work !!

    Posted by E Don Smith on 19th Sep 2012

    I am a new general license holder but had been a technician for a few years. Since I was familiar with 2m/70cm radio use and all the complicated buttons and drop down menus I was expecting the same when I got a HF radio. Luckily I discovered TenTec before I bought one of the uber complicated Japanese radios. I feel really good about supporting a company that still makes products in the USA plus the radio is really easy and fun to use. The adjustments are simple and straight forward and using it is a joy instead of a part time job. I am really happy with the radio and would not trade it for two of the other brands.


  8. I'm not a techie

    Posted by Larry, KR0K on 16th Jul 2012

    I did a fair amount of research within the price range of the Omni 7, plus knew some Hams who had TEN-TEC radios. I also looked at the specs of radios costing a lot more. I feel after a couple of months of being on the air including using it for field day, that it meets all my expectations and then some. Easy to operate, great recieve, great audio. I feel I got real value, and it's Made in America!

    "IF YOU WANT TO BE IN RADIO HEAVEN", by John Occhipinti, K3UR

    If you want to be in radio heaven,
    you should buy the Ten-Tec Omni VII,
    do not be fooled by it's smaller size,
    you will be in for a big surprise;
    it can transmit all the way to 4K,
    no matter what the skeptics have to say,
    it rolls off at a smooth 70Hz,
    maintaining cleanliness within the frequency skirts;
    so if you want to be in radio heaven,
    you should buy the Ten-Tec Omni VII,
    the menus are all so easy to use,
    with the Omni VII you cannot lose;
    noise reduction and also running split,
    makes the Omni VII a real big hit,
    so if you want to be in radio heaven,
    you've got to get the Ten-Tec Omni VII.
