Rip:  I have also bought a used 563 rev 3 and used it for some time and it is a 
good radio.
I also bought a used Jupiter and did the blue screen uodate.  I like the 538 
it does a
really good job.  I sometimes check into the Tenn phone net and have a good 
when the net control keeps talking about the guys up 2 that are really QRMing 
him.  Oh,
I do not hear them too much on the Jupiter!  The NECOS says he dosen't like 

Too bad!  A friend close by has an Orion ll   and traded up from the earlier 
one.  He
likes the radio and doubt that he would consider anything else.

Hope all this helps you decide which way to go.

Thanks George (W6GF), that is just the feedback
that I am looking for. I appreciate your comment
on the Eagle; sounds like you either own or tried
them all. I did not bring up the Eagle because
I have an K-1 and was trying to avoid the 
ergonomics of small radios. Maybe I will give
it some more thought. Larry (W8ER), I appreciate
the comment on used TTs. I currently have an
Omni VI 563 and a Triton 540; both were bought
used. I have always bought used and I would
like to try new before I fully retire from
the workforce. Carl (N4PY), I appreciate the
comment on the Omni VII; I am really considering
it but need to justify the extra $1K in cost.
Thanks all; it seems like the Jupiter has been
around for a while. I hate to buy a TT rig only
to have them stop production. Who knows?
