 +The A means Analog display\\ ​

 +Omni A series B\\ 
 +Omni D Series B
 +Tentec also offered an upgrade kit to turn the originals into the B series. ​ You can tell it is an upgrade if one of the knobs on the 
 +right side of the front panel has a sticker over the original panel markings. ​ I think it is the bandwidth selector switch. ​ The 
 +Originals had a squelch control in that position.
 +The third and final mutation was available only in digital and is called the Omni D Series C
 +Those are the official names. ​ The street names work like this.  The first model is called either the A or D, depending on display. ​ The second model is the B and is usually assumed to be digital. ​ The third model is simply called the Omni C.
