I have the use of My brothers Delta II and Argonaut II,  these are great 
radios they are so much better then the Scout there is no comparison.  I 
don't understand the Scout, why didn't they just upgrade the Argosy, most of 
the short comings of the Argosy had been addressed by Mod's carried out by 
it's owners, Ten Tec could have incorporated the best of these into the 
radio.  The modules make the Scout much too expensive, once all the modules 
are in hand.  For the price of a totally outfitted Scout you can get a FT 
840 Yaesu, TS 50S Kenwood, DX-70T Alinco, etc.  I have used all of the 
radios mentioned
and I can tell the Delta II/Argonaut II, Yaesu, Kenwood, and Alinco
are better radios then the Scout.  This really troubles me because I like 
Ten Tec gear.  I hope the Pegasus is the start of a new and good thing.
