Orion being good front end performer got several annoying issues like lack
of CW PTT, lack of choice of baud rate for RS232, underpowered processor
that makes you CW choppy when you adjust DSP BW during TX, poor choice of
tuning rates, clicks in one of the head phones when monitor is engaged in
CW. The radio freezes up during TX and needs reloading from time to time and
the worst thing is that TT is reluctant to deal with these problems claiming
these are "features" and not problems.
