 Have an Orion 1 up for
 grabs….have spent some time refurbishing this rig back up
 to snuff and it now seems to be functioning good. All
 buttons and encoders seem to work properly.
 All filter positions filled
 with TT filters and as built in antenna tuner.
 100% output all bands and
 Installed newer
 black/white display…old one was getting tired and dim.
 Cleaned connectors with
 deoxit, so sub receiver is now working consistently.
 Rebuilt A3 power distribution
 board with new caps.
 memory battery was replaced 2-3 years ago.
 Installed pigtail with
 anderson power poles and fuse holder for dc power input.
 Installed 10 ohm resistor in
 dc line to display backlight…keeps display from getting
 too warm from backlight. 
 Drilled two small holes in bottom of chassis to
 facilitate access to display contrast and mic gain.
 Comes with hand mic, manual
 and anything else can find that goes with the rig.
 I want $650.00, includes
 shipping via fedex and will take pay pal.
 Reason for selling…migrating
 to sdr rigs and will consider an Icom 7300 plus a little pay
 pal cash for trade.
