Yeah, I was thinking about the mic connector.  Why not just replace it 
with a Bluetooth transceiver?  Probably cheaper than the normal mic 
circuit + ADC.  Use your favorite BT headset, your cell phone, or what 
have you for the audio.  A natural for the digital audio link to your 
CPU, also.

Most of all, no chance to blow it by plugging in a mono headset or your 
CW key by mistake!

I do think the Orion III should have the red dot, however. ;-)
