I have played with the Delta II (though I've never owned one) and it seemed
to me that the combination of the Jones filter and PBT did more to sort out
a desired weak signal from between strong ones and make it readable than
anything else I've tried. I've always wanted one of these, but right now
the $895 Ten Tec wants for a refurbished one is a little out of my budget.
IMHO, they were excellent rigs. Besides, I'd rather spend that kind of
money on a 526 when it comes out, since I have a very adequate Ten Tec HF
rig. It's just not as nice as a Delta II.

I work with computers for a living, and when I go to play with my radios,
the last thing I want to deal with is a PC. A Scout II would serve my
needs, and would be something I would be likely to buy.
