Man, this rig has served me well, but all of a sudden, the lcd display is going insane.. It just rolls through random numbers and I can't even tell which frequency I'm on sometimes.

This seems intermittent, but happened all of a sudden today.

It happens on all bands.

This video shows a mild version of what happens.. When it all goes haywire, it gets even worse!!

They have a old thread in the Ten Tec section about this problem with the Omni C over at the contesting.com forum. It looks like it is time for you to go through and anoint your Omni C with the holy oil of Caig DeOxit, at least the connections to the frequency counter/display that is. The search term is; omni d series c display problem
