Hello Rick
Many Thanks for your helpfull Letters. I hope it can be fixed these with new 
Capacitors. Yes i know, the Capacitors are very important, but for me this 
is a new situation with this ORION. Maybe a Ceramic- Capacitor parrallel to 
the new 470µF is also helpfull.
Before i has used the FT990 and FT1000D for CW very bad, the TS930S from 
Kenwood is mutch better, like perfect. Now the Orion with Dual-Receive anf 
less Oszillatornoise beat the TS930S.
