Well George & Steve, you have got me thinking about that Eagle. It would be 
nice to try one out, who knows. I just watched some You Tube presentations on 
the both the Eagle and the newer Jupiter; they both have their strong points. I 
like to operate CW (although I may occasionally plug in the microphone)and my 
initial thoughts were that the new Jupiter is better suited for CW and the 
Eagle for phone; but watching the videos has changed that perspective to some 
degree. The cw decoder would be a nice feature for those times when I cannot 
wrap my brain around 25+ wpm; especially after a tough day at work. Oh well, 
they are both in the same price range; my initial concern is that the Jupiter 
has been around for about 10 years and Ten Tec seems to change up models with 
some predictability. I plan to keep the Omni VI and the Triton just as long as 
I can keep them working, but I would like a new pre-retirement radio going 
forward. Thanks again for the Eagle
 perspective. 73s Rip  W7RIP
