Just following all the complaints  and praises of the Orion 2. I just 
noticed that Hilberling have  updated their product pages with specs and 
It seems perfect engineering does have its price, at 2 to 3 times the 
Orions price!


There is no mention of Ultimate receiver specs at 2 khz spacing. But it 
certainly has used some state of the art RF design techniques like, high 
voltage mosfets and , Diplexer filters in the PA. The PA has very 
respectable 3rd order IMD numbers, i dont know if it has a calibrated S 

It seems the designers have been listening to the many complaints about 
contemporary ham radio transceiver design problems. The construction is 
certainly impressive, it looks like something from R&S.

Whose going to be the first run this  15,000 Euro Dollar  wonder up 
against the Orion2?  We all would be interested!
