Orion 2
s/n 02C10436
fw 2.032
Menu-CW-PTT in CW as: MOX
Internal Keyer ON

Choose some band with band-change keypad.
Set up SSB mode with VOX=ON on one of the  bandstacking registers.
On the next bandstacking register set up the radio in CW mode.

Now go to SSB by band change keypad and make sure VOX is ON
Then press pad to change to the CW band segment. Then the VOX sign
on the display changes.
Now tap on the microphone or whistle  into the mic while in CW mode.

My radio then goes into transmit and puts out a constant carrier at the
output power level!
The only way to shut of the carrier is to hit the main power switch.
Should'nt the VOX be disabled while on CW?

Imagine you changed from SSB to CW. Then, while leaving the room for the
bathroom, you slam the door shut. That may take the Orion into transmit.
When you return your amplifier may have gone up in smoke...

Can anybody else reproduce this?
