wel folks, I fixed a problem with my mic and all my scratchies went  away.  I 
am using 2.056 on original Orion and it is working quite nicely ,  thank you. 
 I do so love to see folks who don't own the  radio, and  have never even 
called  Ten Tec complain on how they operate.  I would  not buy a Porsche 
 because they are too small, have I ever tried to  sit in one, no, but I 
still say they are too small, I don't need to own one HI  HI.
that is like the silliest thing I ever heard. I like my Orion, and it works  
well, it functions quite nicely and it did take me a bit of time to learn how 
to  use it., but that is not the radios fault.  I think the constant 
complaints  on the reflector about the minor problems  seem like a disaster to  
outsiders and they are forming opinions on hear say of a few folks.  there  are 
probably several thousand Orion out there by now, and there is 7 or 8 people  
who constantly argue  about what shade of gray the case is painted, (  you 
mean its not black??)  so if we continue to bad mouth the Orion it will  
to chase others away. It is a good radio, best of the 10 hf rigs I  currently 
own.  I can buy any rig I want, and choose the Orion as  best.  its the one I 
use daily.  
I am not saying to stop complaining, I am saying it is scaring folks  off.  a 
heads up that if you do A and B and C that x happens is ok and send  a copy 
to dits and bits.  that should do it. 
 your mileage may vary,

Another guy  in our club went for a Pro III, although I don't know for sure 
why.   One fellow who used to be a regular on this reflector sold his and 
bought  an SDR-1000.
