Caros Colegas,

A TenTec lançou na HAMVENTION 2007 como estão recordados, o primeiro transceptor que se pode ligar directamente á Internet sem a necessidade de qualquer PC local e com controle remoto imediato.

O TenTec Omni VI deve ser conectado através da sua porta Ethernet incorporada, a um Router  e a partir deste pode ser operado remotamente de qualquer PC ou Portátil ligado á Internet através de interface gráfico disponível pelo fabricante.

Definitivamente, aquela técnica utilizada por muitos Dx`s de inventar uma desculpa para ir a correr a casa fazer aquela "figurinha" que faltava, está resolvida por $2.650 Dólares.


OMNI-VII is the first truly Net-Ready ham transceiver. No PC required at the rig to operate remote! Locate your OMNI-VII anywhere you have wideband Internet access. Simply connect its built-in Ethernet port to your router with our exclusive One Plug connection. Delivers live receive AND transmit operation from anywhere else in the world from another wideband Internet access! A simple GUI (Graphical User Interface) written for the OMNI-VII will be available for download at no charge from our firmware update website. That's not all: the latest GUI source code (written in Visual Basic) and complete programming instructions can be downloaded to build your own GUI.
Unrivaled Close-in Dynamic Range in price class. OMNI-VII just raised the receiver performance bar for the competition! Our new Distributed Roofing Filter architecture places filters in both the 1st and 2nd IFs at just the right places. Three built-in filters at 20 kHz, 6 kHz, and 2.5 kHz are included (2.5 kHz is a Collins mechanical filter). Optional Collins mechanical filters at 500 Hz and 300 Hz are also available. Filters can be selected manually or use AUTO for automatic selection via front panel DSP Bandwidth control. Also included are 37 built-in DSP bandwidth filters from a minimum of 200 Hz to 9 kHz maximum.
Take a look at what else OMNI-VII brings to your shack:
