SO here is an interesting idea, can some one make a list of settings, so the
Orion is set the same as a IC-756 or an old TS-930, or a FT-847 , you know,
all the settings and bandwidths etc so it sounds just like the target rig.
Then we will have our back up rigs built into our orions...:)
I believe that the Tentec staff must have a real sour stomach full of some
of the comments made relating to the Orion over the last year or so. I
commend them for their level headed, focused, straight forward approach to
resolving real issues and discarding conceived issues which do not fall in
the general broad market spectrum of the Orion radio.
As key point, the radios' functionality and operation parameters are
software based. The key here is SOFTware. It is fluid, dynamic, and
changeable. It is a radio that presents itself with a very large potential
for continuing future operational improvements and enhancements. It is not
limited to certain aspects of nameless other brands, presented with the
mentality of "this is the way it is, if you don't like it we'll have a new
model in a few months". I certainly am not, due to budget for my hobby, a
fan of the "radio of the month" idea, although I do have at my disposal a
rather significant selection of current production radios.
