I'd second the point about diversity reception. The second Rx antenna doesn't seem to be critical. You get a very interesting effect as long as the antennas have significantly different patterns. Wit

Any Linux / Orion programmers out there? I've been working on the Orion "backend" for Hamlib, the "universal" free library that aims to provide a rig-independent programming environment. It is now wo

See, we do need a color LCD -- so we can have a Blue Screen of Death for occasions like this. :-) Seems like the firmware stepped on itself. Spinning the knobs fast? Can you repeat it? 73 Martin AA6E

Tom & QRQers, If QRQ operation would be affected by the proposed "segregate by bandwidth" rules, this needs to go to the ARRL directors and management. And I suggest you contact all the QRQers out th

Tommy, I guess we've had this conversation before about ARRL. I have to admit that I don't see the compelling case for restructuring by bandwidth myself. It has some logic, but you need more than tha

Jim, What do you mean "turned off"? Lost receiver audio? What firmware version? I've never seen that problem, but I observe that lots of things slow down when you spin the VFO rapidly. Maybe some eag

Announcing the O II does not mean that O I firmware development is stopped. Possibly (hopefully) much of the "Version 2" software for the original Orion, much waited for, will be in common with the s

You didn't say which firmware you're running, but I have seen the same problem on my Orion (1.372). It's not repeatable for me, but when it happens, I can fix it by "fiddling" with other controls. Ca

Yes, I understand an image can be imprinted on the LCD, but it's reversible if you run a pure white screen for a long enough time. (Orion won't let you do that, of course.) An instruction manual is e

The solution, sadly, is to reload v 1.372. That's what many of us have done. This beta version is way too much "beta". Sad, because it shows a lot of promise. AN worked OK for me, but the SP situatio
