I guess I started all of this discussion based on my observations of my
friend's new Orion II as compared to my original Orion.
I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, but as a radio consumer with a
software defined radio here is what I want in the new original Orion V 2.0
update (whenever it comes out) (grin).
I want the S meter and the RF gain control to work just as in the current V
1.372 but with whatever new stuff Ten Tec has decided to add.
That is, I want to see the true S meter reading independent of the setting
of the RF gain control. I like being able to see the strength of the signal
stay the same while decreasing the RF gain to eleminate band noise.
Just my preference I guess....I like the current version of 1.372 for my
