Received my Orion II last week. After I heard all the horror stories about
UPS I emailed the factory and told them to send it either by Fed Ex or DHL. I
have favorable experiences with both those carriers. Scott gave me a
confirmation email and changed the shipping instructions.
He had it shipped 2 Day Fed Ex. It arrived here looking like it was just
packed! In fact, if the box didnt have a small black smudge, I would have
it was hand carried here.
They pack that radio very, very well. No doubt in my mind that it copuld
survive a lot of mishandling.
Kudos to Ten Tec and Fed Ex.
The radio got its first baptism in ARRL CW DX Test last weekend. What a
competition tool! Impressive.
