I haven't read where anyone is "bashing" any one manufacturer, but stating their real life experience with a dog of a performer. Sounds like that Omni VI for all the dollars you paid isn't so stellar a performer either if you have to contend with drift. Pretty sad commentary for "buy American (and accept marginal performance)". Personally, I had bad experience with the TT Jupiter and will never go back. Beyond the technical issues, the personal customer service was a real eye opener. If you are a TT supporter and don't want honest user feedback, then don't read any of the posts on here. Hi. On to other radios, another I forgot to mention as a poor performer was the IC-720. I had one. Switching bands made you jump back with the clackith clack, clack, clack. What the heck was that? A mechanical band switch! I got rid of it right away. Found out later, Icom did not stock parts ofr it and finding parts was close to looking for hens teeth. Some designs leave me scratching my head.
