I also have an Orion II and Centurion.  I tune the Centurion to resonance using 
the Orion TUNE button.  I then use a monitor scope with triangle pattern to 
adjust the Centurion Load control and Orion audio drive to obtain max 
linearity.  The Centurion output leds read around 600 watts out on ssb voice.  
Don?t know how proper this is, but works for me.  If anyone out there has a 
better method, let us know.
