How about Software issues I have so often heard about?
There are rumours the Orions need switch off and then back on a few
times a weekend.
I have never seen one and would like to have a fifth opinion.
..yes, I have reports of four badly behaving Orions...

Is that now history or what is the situation?
I would not like to have to boot my radio every now and then.

If you answer Orions are OK also in this respect, I will need about a
dozen more guys stating Orions are not like Windows 95.
Then I might dare to buy a few Orions.
