Been "off the air" with sats once the demise of AO40 but with
all the new birds up, thought I'd give it another go. Since hardware
and software have changed a great deal, thought I'd get some opinions.
I have a Yaesu FT736r and and Yaesu FT847. G5400b rotor and a 22 element
2M cross beam and a larger 440 (not sure how may elements) beam. All
setup on 2.4ghz receive with a converted direct broadcast box i modified
and recently finished an LVB tracker. So the big question remains....
what software? Kind of narrowed it to either SCRAP or Nova, but
any suggestions good bad or otherwise? I used to use WinOrbit before
but would like to use az/el AND radio tuning with the 847... Many
thanks. -James KI0KN
