This isn't a bug in the hardware or firmware, more like a bug in the  
operator (me) that brings up a need for very clear instructions.
Last night I put my Orion II on RTTY for the first time since installing  
the 707 mike.  I operate RTTY using MixW and AFSK through a Navigator  
interface, with the rig's VOX turned OFF.  Despite this,  when transmitting 
the 707 mike is LIVE.  To fix this, TX  Audio Source in the SSB menu must be 
set to AUX, not BOTH as I had it set with  the 706 mike which is off unless 
VOX is turned on or the PTT button is  depressed.  The same is true when 
operating PSK.  To operate SSB,  TX Audio Source should be set to MIC.
The instruction sheet that comes with the 707 does say that the mike is  
always live, but IMHO it should also warn against using the BOTH setting when  
operating digi modes.
