Given that for many years an Argonaut has been commonly called an "argo" 
in conversation on and off the air, it is odd that Ten-Tec called the 
low power version of the Scout an Argo. I should think that a "baby" 
scout would be properly called a "cub". (Maybe some other company had 
already laid claim to that name.)
