I know this is sacrilege but came to Ten Tec back when the Paragon came out 
and I was tired of sending my Icom 751 back and forth and to Icom and never 
getting it fixed. I swore off the Jap radios. I did however keep the SP-20 
Icom speaker. It is the finest speaker I have ever found. I used it all this 
time with my Paragon and it works outstanding with my Jupiter. Sorry no 
Orion experience here.
