I have to smile at that one - but really, Jack Burchfield is Ten-Tec.

I'm trying to discipline myself.  Actually, that's not true - the 
engineering staff has a monopoly on Orion II time at present.

To borrow and use, sure, but not yet one that's "mine".  I'll take home 
the demo Orion II rig that we'll have in the lobby radio room for 
contests like I've done for the original Orion.  I have to wait until 
the demand subsides before I'll have one myself - with the original 
Orion it took almost a year.  The hard part will be deciding which of 
the Omni-VI Plus or Orion are going to have to hit the road when I get 
the new one.  Probably the Omni-VI Plus.
