Hi Ray,  

We are in the final phase of production for the RX-366. All of the boards  
have been built as of yesterday. We are going through final 
alignment/testing  of the hardware as we speak.

Installation procedure/User Manual is basically ready.

Version 3 firmware for both the 565 and the 566 are in the final days of  
beta testing. If all goes well, we will be releasing the V3 firmware to the  
general public as an official release next week, and possibly taking orders  
for the RX366 as well.

V3 has been in use in a variety of Orion(s), 565 with RX366s, 565s  without 
RX366s, 566s with RX366s, and 566s without RX366s. All of the above  have 
been used by some serious top level Contesters / DXers in several of the  
major contests over this past few months, with exceptional results for the  
beta testers. A few have stated we have raised the bar once again. Even in  
their first run Orion 565s.

I am working on a "Version 2 to Version 3" addendum to the manuals (565  
and 566). Version 3 brings with it a few very interesting new features, and  
about 30 improvements in features and bug fixes. The new features will  
definitely give the very serious DXer and Contestor some new tools to help  
work "more/better/faster/reliably/etc.". 

I myself, personally, optimistically put both of them as "shippable" next  
week. Just need to ensure that the sales infrastructure/web site is ready... 
 hi hi hi.

Can you tell? I'm very enthusiastic and anxious to get both of these  
available to everyone as soon as possible.

Thanks for asking, soon,
Best Regards,
