That same problem happened to me about 3 months ago only my line was just
above the bottom of the 100 on the power display.  I wonder if others have
had the problem.  The display costs $119 US plus labor.  I sent my rig back
and Ten-Tec also did other updates as well as a 24 hour cycling bench test.
The rig is working great, but would be better if they could just get the
software working well.

Hi Gang,

just before WPX my Orion started to show his rough edges. The display 
suddenly shows a strange horizontal line. I'm rather unappy and so badly 
affected that I'm giving up the contest.

To save bandwidth I prepared a detailed description including some poor 
photos showing this artifact. If you are keen of LCD displays and Orion 
and willing to offer me a helpful hand, go please to:

Of course, this is a hidden link. I don't wish any negative propaganda 
around my beloved toy...

Many thanks in advance!

Martin, OK1RR
