|After one of my remaining Orions died during ARRL DX CW, I tried to get my backup Eagle to work with the last of the Orions in the ARRL SSB. No luck. So, I bit the bullet and bought the closest thing to an Orion - a Yaesu FTDX500MP, my first ever non-USA rig. Lots of learning curve to go through, and less than perfect integration in to the station, but seems promising. Found out Saturday that my DXDoubler has been contributing to some long-standing SSB problems - transmitting on the left radio puts audio onto both microphone connectors! So, mainly used the left radio for spotting band openings on 10 and 15 meters, since the exchange radios command which has worked perfectly for many years with a variety of TenTec radios turned out to be a one-way transfer with the Yaesu. I had already taken down the 80meter 4 square so was using 35 foot high inverted V on 75meters, so left a lot of potential QSOs there. Still had a lot of fun.|
