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
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,

know of one who I speak to once in a while on 75 meters who decided on the
IC-7800 after reading everything on the Internet about the Orion II.
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.
