Curious as to what rig you are currently using for comparison to  the
ORION with respect to user friendliness?  Are you also an ORION  user?

I never laid hands on an Orion Steve, but have here  an Omni C, an Omni V and 
an Omni VI+ and have had fun and  success them all on CW, chasing DX and 
casual rag chewing. I also have evaluated  a Jupiter for a few months under 
contest and summertime conditions. The only  thing really lacking in the 
Jupiter for 
me is a receiver with better  selectivity, AGC and whatever "mojo" it takes 
to dig the weak ones out of  the mud and maybe catch a needed one under contest 
conditions.  I'm  looking for a hot rod rather than a luxury ride. The 
smaller, less ostentatious,  cheaper "Jupiter II", should it come, I think, 
would be 
exactly what I'm  looking for.
