I did not know that the Orion was designed for the "average ham". I received
my Orion I in early August of '05 and am running version 1.372 firmware. I
am quite happy with the Orion performance and am perfectly willing to
operate with 1.372 indefinitely. I certainly don't mind if TT offers an
update for the OMNI series, but I would be disappointed if TT does not
continue with development of the Orion series.
