Well there has been a lot of discussion on the Ten Tec reflector about the  O 
II.  but that is neither here or there..  I had a 756, and still  have a 746 
pro, ts 2000, ft 847, corsair II and scout, and two ft 857 d's among  others,  
and what do I use day today and in contest... The Orion ( mine is  an 
original) .  
On ssb you can bring the BW down, add attenuation and such and make the  band 
feel like everyone lined up 5 kc's apart and all are in order, and  behaving. 
.  you can just about kill the QRM from adjacent stations, and on  cw you can 
get down to 100 cycles for a single signal. 
it is easy to work split and on cw the differential reception is a  miracle.  
I  had the 756 and the Orion together for a while and sold  the 756.  the 
Orion does it all and better.  I will probably get the O  II later, but right 
the Orion and the alpha 87 A do the trick for me.. 
My opinion, only
Your Mileage May Vary..

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   ;-)
