I'll go grab the manual off the website now.
A key jack on the front of a rig...just like the good old days! Wonder if
the keyer can be configured as a bug which then you allow you to plug a
straight key into the paddle jack for straight key nite? (I know...RTM!)
I'm keeping my Omni-V.9+ as a spare rig. It beat out my old TS-930 for cw
selectivity close-in. I'll do a side by side with the Orion when it
I'm living vicariously through you current Orion owners... As you come
across things you find extra cool or if there is anything you see that
disappoints you please pass it along.
