I hope so too, the huge price gap between the Jupiter
and the Orion is large enough to drive several
competing models through. I'm hoping that TT is
thinking of a model that uses the same basic
design/circuitry of the sub RX side of the Orion as
the basis for a ~$2000 - 2200 transceiver. The sub RX
of the Orion sounds like it will be a pretty capable
RX all by itself, even without selectable roofing
