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?
