I'm running 2.056 as well.  I'm a CW only op, and don't do  
contesting.  The reality is that the radio is probably more than I  
need, but I love the sensitivity and after owning several TenTec  
radios (C21, Argosy II, Corsair II, Argonaut 5 and Jupiter) , as well  
as a couple of Icom and Yaesu radios, I knew I wanted another  
TenTec.  Truth be told, I think for a general get on the air radio, I  
like the corsair II best - mostly for its simplicity and great  
receive.  But I do love my Orion, particularly when working those  
borderline QRP radios.  Diversity reception is amazing.
