Having purchased an Orion, close a year ago,  I'd like to comment that it still 
exceeds expectatons.  No clicks, no BCI, no problems with my Titan amplifier 
and no shut downs while call DX or engaged in a contest.  Most everyone I talk 
with comments on the smooth keying and, most important it receives signals, on 
occasion, that neither of my Icom's hear using the same antenna.  It has 
crashed once due to RFI  ... a little research of my cables quickly found the 
problem.  The N4PY software, along with the remote pod, make operating this 
radio a real pleasure.  
The tone that's currently running on this reflector is mostly negative and not 
constructive.  I highly recommend that subscribers offer suggestions and 
support as opposed to negative grand standing.  We all can benefit from 
constructive comments, especially from those who take the time to communicate 
in a non-offending manner.
