My biggest problem is that on ver 2.XX I have a real problem with the audio  
on the monitor, it is real scratchy and staticey on the orion (origonal ver) 
and  both of 2.xx versions, I have had problems on the SSB on all bands when 
using  the monitor function , any thing below 2 and I can't hear it well, ( BAD 
EARS)  and any thing over 2 it gives the horrible scratchy noise. 
on the other hand I used 1.372 and everything works well, although the NB  is 
not very effective in thei version. 
But all that said it is still the best hf rig I own.  thanks for a  great

We're aware of the concerns about firmware.  We  discuss these items 
often - it was the first topic of conversation when I  came in to work 
this morning.   The only specific comment I'd  make now on the 4 items 
below is that #4 is the design of the Orion and  Orion II - the receivers 
are not phase-locked together.  There is no  firmware change available to 
alter this.

Rob Sherwood has been  talking back and forth with us often about the 
direction of the Orion and  we provided some alternate beta firmware for 
him to use per his  suggestions.
