Used Ten-Tec ORION-II HF Transceiver Model 566-AT and Accessories Package

When introduced, this transceiver was heralded as the “most innovative HF transceiver ever created for amateur radio use.” Its design focused on meeting the rigors of serious DXing and contesting while maintaining superb ergonomics and operator’s ease of use. The ORION-II offers world-class all-mode reception on the 10 HF bands PLUS excellent general coverage reception via the second (sub) receiver from 100 kHz to 30 MHz. This unit includes a full complement of 7 filters, the 4 main filters plus three optional roofing filters (a 1.8 kHz, a 600 Hz, and a 300 Hz). These filters are complemented by Ten-Tec’s superb DSP filtering implementation. An included 1 ppm TCXO assures solid frequency stability. A Ten-Tec remote tuning knob (302R) with 3 user-definable function switches is also included in this package. This unit was purchased new, has very little operating time on it and it is in “as new” condition. All documentation, parts and shipping containers are included. This unit has been stored in air-conditioned home, non-smoker environment. (NOTE: Reading the Operator’s Manual and being able to access the design information at Ten-Tec’s website reveals why this transceiver is an international favorite of discerning radio operators.)
The Tentec Orion II (with internal ATU) Super bright, TFT color display with CCFL backlighting. 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. Thisprocessor also provides the horsepower for a future planned "HIGH SPEED SWEEP" accessory. Features, price and availability of accessory to be determined. All-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-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. Thisarrangement yields subtle improvement in dynamic range and thefilters 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! Mixing architecture for the analog stages has been rearranged to provide self-correction for frequency stability. Digital mode operators will appreciate variable (programmable) line level output on rear panel completely independent of front panel controls. ORION II now uses the popular 8 pin mic connector. This broadens the range of mikes and accessories readily available through the hobby for your use without finding or making adaptors.
