Ten Tec Courtesy  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
When my Omni VI was returned from factory repair, Ten Tec installed the new rubber knob trim ring for as a courtesy, with a nice thank-you note. It really does give the main VFO a good feel. With just the corner of a finger, constant, solid contact is maintained. Thanks, Ten Tec!

Great Fun  Time owned: more than 12 months
Ten Tec red rubber knob ring. Excellent. (How could they screw it up... it is just a rubber ring for Pete's sake...) but great fun to jazz up and put a slash of color on the rig.

Must Have!  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
As a latecomer to Ten-Tec products (a used Paragon since traded in for a used Omni V), my complaint to Ten-Tec was that the main tuning knob did not do justice to the rigs. Compared to my TS-850 and its Icom 245 predecessor, the Ten-tec rigs felt "flimsy" or even a little "cheap" when tuning although the performance was great. Now, for $10 or $12, you can have a very pleasant change and have your older Ten-Tec feel like the new ones. These are soft and provide more friction to your fingers. I like them a lot and intend to replace the trim rings on my 238 tuner and Centaur amp also. Perhaps not for everyone, but for $10 it is not much of a gamble, especially if you felt as I did about the original knobs.
