Well stated Al, so let's hear what TT has that is even better!

There are no perfect radios, TT or otherwise, but there will be 
newer radios, and hopefully better radios in the future.

Considering the recent work of K9YC, will the new TT gear be even
"cleaner" on transmit, I would hope that to be true too.

The Orion and Orion II are gone, what will be the TT replacement 
for this specific market segment? (Will there be a replacement?)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays,

73 de Billy, AA4NU

I think it's good to discuss this as a "real world" exercise in knowing what 
the competition is doing. To sell a radio to a non-brand loyal ham, TT has to 
be aware of things like Sherwood's chart in terms of design, pricing, etc.

Just my $0.02 worth.
