-====== Omni V Disable Amp Relay Mod ====== 
-**From Ten Tec Reflector July 4, 1998** 
-I installed an SPST toggle switch on the upper left corner of the back panel (above all the connections. ​ I interuppted the signal to the base of the relay driver transistor and ran it through the switch. ​ I can reach over the radio and toggle the switch when I want to engage the amp. Otherwise I operate with the relay silenced.  ​ 
-It is a ten minute mod except you have to drill a small hole in the back-ouch! I hate to deface anything- but no one sees it and it doesn'​t really look out of place. ​ Wonder why TT didn't do it in the first place? 
-The Omni VI silences the relay in software, but you have to scroll through the menu sytem to do it.   ​Simple old me- I prefer the switch! ​ 
-Best wishes de John, WA5TWL 
-**From the Ten Tec Reflector July 6, 1998** 
-I have done the same as John, except I didn't mount my switch on the rear panel. 
-Instead, I found (after a lot of head scratching) a spot to get through the rear panel with a piece of RG-174 and have the switch lying underneath the front of the radio, just behind the bail wire. I sneaked through the rear panel beside the power connector. There'​s plenty of space for a couple of conductors, but I 
-used RG-174.
