contesters who bought and then got rid of their Orion's?

         Tilt.  FACT CHECK:  K1GQ and W1FV
both use Orions at KC1XX and there were 3
in use at KC1XX in the most recent CQ 160 CW
so I'm not sure who owns the third.  Also
I should know from the PVRC reflector if
W3LPL had ever tried an Orion.  Is this
another example of TT reflector misinformation?

         I've had 5 first place USA finishes in
ARRL DX and CQ WW the past 2 years since I got
my Orion.  FWIW, my 10m QSO totals have been
higher than all multi-multi's in 3 of the past
4 CQ WW contests...and I'm only one operator,
one Orion, legal power, no Packet and antennas
that are much smaller than the top MM's.


         I only hope my competition believes
everything they read on this reflector.  Please
don't buy an Orion!
