What do you mean "he said TT would not even let HIM
take one home."???

Scott IS Ten Tec. 

He won't allow even himself to take one home?

Not to stir up any discontent, but does any one else
sense the possibility of a conspiracy here? ;-)

I'll give odds on one thing - that by Fall contest
time Scott DOES have an Orion II at home...

I had the pleasure of attending W4PN's excellent
presentation on Ten Tec and the Orion (II) at the
Texas DX meeting recently.  He did not  
spend much time talking about differences between the
Orion and the Orion II, since except for the color
screen this is a marginal upgrade, with NO difference
in receiver performance.  I was glad to hear that TT
has a supply of parts (including Orion processors) and
future repairs won't be a problem.  The real upgrade
will be v2.0, and Scott appeared to be very pleased
with his alpha testing.  As for beta testers having an
Orion II to work with, he said TT would not  
even let HIM take one home.
