I've the Orion 1 (AT) with the original software.

I note that when I've got the PWR set above 70, the meter needle

slams into the stop (this on CW.)

  Is there a way to reduce the meter's sensitivity such that I can run 

full power and not peg the meter on each dit and dah?

Also, I like to run QRP and find that even with the PWR all the 

way down, I can't go below @7 watts on 30, 40, 80 or 160.

I'd like to be able to have "1" on the PWR indicator be between 4 and

4.8 watts out.

Lastly, is there some manner of software that would cause the Orion

to "band scan" wherein I would set an upper and lower frequency limit

and a rate and the unit would tune between these frequencies?
