I IS still on, or near, cloud 9! Hmm - does that mean that I should
have been adding "aeronautical mobile" when IDing?
The ORION was (for me) well worth the wait!!! I am confident that those
awaiting their Orion's will agree.
What is the world record for opening a box? I may not have been close
to that record BUT I was not too far off!
Now for "the good stuff" - - - The receiver takes some getting used to
because it is so good! The receiver is quiet, sensitive and as "tight as a
crab's ***" !!! I love the spectrum scope AND the diversity reception. For
diversity I use a vertical antenna on one side of the house and a "sloper"
(in the RX only position)on the other side. This virtually eliminates QSB.
The second "transceive" antenna is an inverted V. The ability to assign
different antennas to different receivers is also a great feature - one
There are so many things to say that I really do not know where to
begin - or end.
Just let me say, to EVERYONE awaiting an ORION, that you are in for one
heck of a pleasant surprize when the guy in the big brown truck brings a big
white box to your door!!!
Be patient guys & gals. It was hard but I managed to survive the wait
(since last June!)
WHAT AM I DOING??? Sitting here by the computer instead of by the
ORION!!! EGADS!!! What will people think?
I don't like my Orion - - - I LOVE my ORION!!! :-) GREAT JOB TEN-TEC!
