I had an Orion and now I have an OII.
The Orions are great radios!
The Hardware aspect of Orion is super. Especially the RX.
I especially like the panel layout and the 'LACK' of many levels of nested
menu's with lot's of abbreviations like some other high end radios.
However I assure you there is a few major issues with the firmware... See
Ron's (in his e-mail) website for documentation of most of them. Most are in
for SP, NB, NR and AN.
We are hoping that TT resolves them in time as some are a major problem to
some of us that have been involved since day one of Orion and have been through
many versions of firmware.
