Grant, let's tone this down, or better yet, let's all punt. We each have
our opinions....and none are probably any better than the other. Like you,
I have owned MANY top line radios over the 47 years I've been licensed. I
have received OUTSTANDING service from Icom in every instance I've had to
call on them. Most for upgrades. I am not a member of a specific cult or
following. I just use the radios. If you think that TT delivered what they
promised on the Orion, that's simply great. I, and obviously others,don't.
I also have had the Orion and O II setting here side by side. I opt for the
Orion over the Orion II. The screen was better on the O II, and the
features didn't lock up like they do on the Orion at times, but I feel/felt
the performance overall was better on the Orion.
