I don't often taker the bait on this reflector, but it's the above kind of
remark that annoys me with this reflector. All I'm asking about is how the
Orion, as a new entry into the DSP market, might fair against the nearest
DSP competition - which just happens to be made by another manufacturer. And
then the BS starts. I used to own a ProII and now I own a VI+ instead - but
the ProII  is one very fine radio. Why start the sarcastic "if it's not TT
it's no good" style remarks again? I really get tired of the inability of
people to step out of the "TenTec Forever" box.
  It's a legitimate question for this reflector. Do we know if the 32 bit IF
DSP system in the Orion works better than the Pro? Is that even a sensible
question or is there too much else that is different between the designs?
Myself I have no clue. It appears that no one happens to own both, but it
sure would be nice to know.
