I installed a beta RX366 in my  Orion II about mid-Sept 2011 and have 
contested extensively with it ever since.  Much of it in the N1MM SO2V mode you 
mention. K8IA and N7AT callsigns used  here.

It is a significant improvement over the stock sub-rx. When  introduced to 
it for 2011 CQWW CW, one of the ops here (N7AT M/2) said, "sounds  just like 
the Main receiver". That's was exactly my point to him.

SO2V is  now a pleasure with the 566/RX366 combo and definitely on par with 
my other  radio, a two-rx K3.

Several weeks have elapsed since Tentec released the RX366  subreceiver 
upgrade for the Orion 2.  I am interested in any remarks  from those who 
have installed the RX355 in their Orion 2....is it a  significant 
upgrade in your opinion?  I'd like to use my Orion 2 with  the main 
receiver running and the subreceiver looking for multipliers during  
contests....maybe the sub receiver using a vertical for non-directional  
searches while my main receiver using a Yagi to make the contact.

I  looked for the RX 366 info on the Tentec website...its not under the 
new  products, not under the Orion 2 options, not under receivers, not 
under  accessories....
