With some of the recent  web discussions on the IC-7800 and the Orion 2, this 
ought to be an interesting  topic for the next NCJ "Contesting on a Budget 
Those âsuper radiosâ: the  catâs pajamas or a gold plated Lexus? 
With many good radios  available on the new and used markets for under $2000, 
why spend $14,000 on an  IC-7800, or purchase even the much more reasonably 
priced Orion II?  Do the capabilities justify the  cost?  Are the myriad 
features a  plus or just too many to master?  Can we build true SO2R capability 
one box?  Do we even want to?  What less pricey alternatives are  available?  
Please direct your  responses to _PaulKB8N@AOL.Com_ (mailto:PaulKB8N@AOL.Com) 
I appreciate your  insights, and will need your responses no later than 
Thursday, May 25th.   Thanks in advance!
