Thanks for whatever wisdom you may share.  I  have the opportunity to
purchase a new rig to replace my Yaesu ft  897d.  The Yaesu is fine and I
have about 250 countries on it with my  log antenna and rebuilt SB-200.
I am between a Orion 1 and Orion 2 -  Flexradio, K3 are out of the
running.  I will be looking to purchase  used in either case.  From what
I can tell from the specs, either  radio has a tremendous receiver and
the user interface is about the same  for the two radios.  From a
reliability, age, availability of parts,  etc your thoughts on the pro's
and con's.  Thanks in advance.   Respond to the reflector or privately to
kd8gox at arrl.net.  -  Karl
