Hi Everyone,

Well, I sit here contemplating the purchase of a 
new radio this Spring and have narrowed my choices 
down to the Pro III (anticipating no new 
replacement from ICOM for it) or possibly the 
Orion II.

What I find curious is that there continues to be 
PLENTY of user feedback and commentary on the Pro 
III on all the standard ham web sites of late even 
2 years after its re-incarnation, while the Orion 
II has had little if any comment of late from 
users on Eham, Yahoo-Orion and this reflector.

What gives?  Three reviews total on E-ham and none 
since late December?  Everyone can't possibly be 
too busy using it all the time to write some 
comment     ;-)

To those of you using the Orion II,  how about 
some more comment on your impressions of how it 
plays,  if the software bugs of the original seem 
under control on the II and the 
versatility/appearance of the color display or 
anything else about which you'd like to comment.

Also curious to me is the lack of updating of the 
Orion II web page on the TT site to include more 
detail on screen versions and more photos of the 
new radio inside and out. References to updates 
appearing at some point in the future are getting 
stale. IMO TT needs to pay a bit more attention to 
presenting its flagship transceiver.

Feeling better already....
