New 32-bit control processor using the latest generation Freescale DragonBall Super VZ chip. Provides faster front panel control response and accelerated remote operation via RS-232.
All-new firmware from the ground up. DSP code is refined, crafted and compacted to levels unimaginable even two years ago. Provides faster (stock) sweep with finer resolution, enhanced DSP automatic notch and DSP noise reduction.
All-new suite of ORION II-specific roofing filters is arranged in one, single bank to allow user to select the absolute ideal roofing filter for mode, band conditions, and personal preference. The narrow (600 and 300 Hz) filters are now located in the same initial bank with all the rest. This new arrangement yields subtle improvement in dynamic range and the new filters have less passband ripple than any we’ve ever offered. ORION II comes standard with 20, 6, 2.4, and 1 kHz installed. Optional filters are 1.8 kHz (model 2000), 600 Hz (model 2001), 300 Hz (model 2002). That’s not all – the optional filters cost less than before!
